Message from Andrew Sutherland - Director of Education & Early Years
A number of schools in Oldham and across Manchester received a threatening email this morning from an unknown source.
This email has been evaluated by the Counter Terrorism Unit in Manchester and risk assessed as a low level threat. It is being treated as a hoax.
This is the second email hoax that has been sent to a number of schools in the last fortnight. Police are investigating the matter and will share appropriate intelligence with the local authority and head teachers as it emerges.
In the meantime, schools have been advised to continue business as usual.
I hope this update is helpful
