I'm reluctant to draw attention to those individuals who appear to be behind a series of hoax emails sent to local schools and colleges. However, as you can imagine the article below has concerned parents across the city. I have been in touch with the Police who have reassured me that they don't believe this is a credible threat and have issued the following statement:
"This morning we received a number of calls from schools across the county concerning a malicious email. The emails were not isolated to the county’s schools and are believed to have been sent to schools across the country.
None of the threats received by schools in Staffordshire are believed to be a threat to our communities. We would like to thank schools for remaining vigilant and urge them to report anything suspicious".
As a parent myself, I'm grateful to both the teachers and Police involved for their professionalism in this matter and the cooperation of parents.
