It has been brought to my attention by Hertfordshire County Council that there are people sending scam emails related to Free School Meals (FSM).
We have been asked by the local authority to warn all families not to respond to any communications that ask for bank details with regard to FSM. No parent/carer should ever part with bank details related to school unless directly approached by the school. We would only ever take this detail from you in person.
Please do not give out private information (such as bank details or passwords), reply to text messages, download attachments or click on any links in emails if you’re not sure they’re genuine. Please see this government link for further helpful information: https://www.gov.uk/report-suspicious-emails-websites-phishing
