SCHOOL CLOSURE - until further notice

Important informtion for parents: Free School Meal Payments

Free School Meal Scam: Be aware of scam emails

The Department of Education (DfE) 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'.

The DfE have confirmed that this is a scam email and is not official. If you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately. Do not give your bank details to anyone that contacts you about Free School Meals other than school.

The only correspondence you will receive regarding Free School Meals will come via the school texting service or by updates on the school website. If you are unsure, please email: admin@claremont.manchester.sch.uk

Updates will be added Wednesday 24th March about the voucher scheme for parents of children who are entitled to Free School Meals to make a claim through Manchester City Council.
