We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating 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 official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.
From Monday 30th March 2020 the Authority will provide all eligible free school meal pupils whose parents signed up to this facility via the email below with 5 frozen meals each week. These meals will be delivered to your home address on a weekly basis. Further information with regards to dates and time will be posted by the end of the week.
If your child is eligible and you wish to receive this service and haven’t yet contacted us, please can you contact the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org urgently.
If you require any further information please telephone 01495 237921

as a local authority we are prioritising childcare places for emergency blue light service, NHS and social care staff. We have already sent out the childcare application form to email addresses of parents we were made aware of through schools, for completion and urgent return by email. If you believe you (and your partner) are eligible and need this childcare provision next week for school age children and have NOT already received an email with the form please follow this website link:
You need to submit the form by Saturday 5pm if you need urgent childcare next week.
