School parents are being warned about a Coronavirus scam asking for bank details to fund their children with free school meals.
The email states ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.
This is a scam – do not respond and delete it immediately.
For further information relating to free school meals during the Coronavirus please visit the Government’s Website.
Government Covid-19 guidance: Stay alert and stay safe
Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently (video tips).
It is recommended that you maintain at least a two metre gap (about 6.5ft) from people who are not from your household.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service that can tell if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
