Safeguarding Alert from Cornwall School Messenger
Together for Families have been made aware of the following safeguarding concerns:
- There have been incidents locally of children being groomed through Snapchat and an online platform called Omegle. There have been 3 cases reported and they appear to have connections to others in their school and other schools. Police and social services are involved.
- There has been a local incident with a hack on the game Roblox. It appears that players are invited to open a gift which is a camera. This then takes a photo and is then shared with other users. This has also involved a child potentially being groomed. Police are involved.
As always we are here for any advice, there is also specific internet safeguarding information available on the school website.

Free School Meals
Cury C of E Primary School will be making the following meal provision for those pupils entitled to Free School Meal during the Covid-19 closure period.
- If a pupil is coming in to school - a meal will be provided in the normal way.
- If a pupil is staying at home - a £15 food voucher will be provided every week during the closure period. The £15 is for a single pupil, so for example if you have three pupils at the school you will receive £45.
- The voucher can be sent in two formats - as an e-voucher or a gift card. If you do not receive your voucher, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your child’s name and the school they attend and we will get back to you.
- Vouchers can be used in store or on-line if you are getting your shopping delivered to home.
- The vouchers are for Free School Meals pupils only and not Universal Free School meals pupils; again, if the Government guidance changes, the school will alter the voucher provision to fit the new guidance.
The Department for Education has been informed that some parents in England that they have received an email stating:
‘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 is a scam email, do not respond and delete it immediately. The school will never request your bank details.
Due to a Change in Circumstances You Need to Register for Free School Meals.
During this period, we suspect due to changes in people’s financial situation that more people than usual will become entitled to Free School Meals. If this applies to you, please follow this link www.cornwall.gov.uk/schoolmeals to apply for Free School Meals.
Cornwall Council have confirmed that this service will continue to operate during the Covid-19 closedown.
Please keep an eye on the school website for further updates.
