SCAM about Free School Meals

Dear All,
It has been brought to our attention that some parents across the country are receiving scam emails.
The fraudsters are pretending to be from the Department of Education. These e-mails state “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 Department of Education have confirmed that this is a scam email and is not official.

"I come that they may have life and have it to the full" - John Chapter 10 verse 10


St Patrick’s is a Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided school situated near the town centre of Oldham. We are a one form entry primary school with a part time nursery. There are currently 222 pupils on roll.   St Patrick’s serves the parish of Our Lady & St Patrick and we are in the Werneth Ward.  We are a very diverse school with children from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and we have approximately 20 different home languages.   St Patrick’s is a happy, caring school where everyone tries their best. We don’t expect anybody to be perfect but we encourage hard work and mutual respect. We use ‘Christ as our vision’ and endeavour to live as Jesus taught us, to love one another and to be forgiving.   Children who join our school become part of the St Patrick’s family along with their families and our parish.
