Hoax threats received by some schools

Dear Parent/Carers

Today, a number of schools in Bracknell Forest have received a threat to the school via email I can confirm EPCS was not one of them.

Bracknell Forest Council has liaised with Thames Valley Police and we can confirm that these emails appear to be part of a much larger group of apparent hoax emails being sent to schools across the country. This situation is being monitored by the police.

Thames Valley police would like to reassure schools and members of the local community that we believe these to be hoax threats. However, please remain vigilant and if see anything suspicious, please contact the Police on 101.

Regards,

Debbie Smith
