Scam emails about free school meals

It appears a number of fake emails are circulating with a message similar to the below:

If your child’s school is closed and your child is entitled to free school meals; then to send your bank details to the school and they will help you with funding while schools are closed.

This is a new take on a very old but simple and very effective fraudulent scam. School will never ask you for your bank details via an email – please do not fall for this scam!
