‘Free School Meals’ Coronavirus Hoax Email

31 March 2020

We are aware that there is a hoax email being circulated that appears to have been sent by HM Government to families who receive free school/college meals asking them to share their bank details to ensure they continue to receive support.

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 email is a scam and not an official communication. We are advising anyone in receipt of this email to not respond and delete immediately.

Anyone entitled to free school/college meals will continue to receive this in line with government guidance.

If you are concerned about the hoax communications or feel you need further support, please contact our Student Support Team on:
