A Head of School from one of our Trust schools received this email warning parents not to respond to emails about Free school meal support. Any questions about FSM will come either from our School Secretary or Head of School.
Be aware of scam emails
Following the government’s announcement this morning, the DfE are warning parents and schools that there are various scam emails circulating the UK. The suspicious email states the following: ‘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’.
We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not an official email. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately. All correspondence sent from Bodmin College will come from our normal capita email address and you will NOT be asked for your bank details.
