Safeguarding alert

Please read the information below received from the Safeguarding Manager for Schools.


I want to make you aware of an incident reported on Tuesday.  A primary school received information from a parent that someone purporting to be a School Nurse contacted them by text to ask questions about their child.  This was reported to the Police and has been confirmed as a hoax.  Virgin Care wish to ensure all schools are aware of this and to provide the following advice to schools to share with parents:


School Nurses do not send text messages as their first contact with parents.

If you receive a text message requesting information about your child from anyone purporting to be a School Nurse, please DO NOT engage.

To check the validity of any request received, please contact the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service Single Point of Access:
