Suspicious Automated Telephone Messages

Published
27.03.2017

Reports have been received of individuals receiving automated telephone calls informing them that their children are absent from school and to call a premium rate 0845 number. 

These messages have been received by both parents with children in school and individuals who do not have school age children.  We would recommend that schools remind parents of their own processes for notifying them of any absences and advice them not to call any premium rate numbers if contacted by an automated system.
