Virgin Care have asked us to confirm that
School Nurses DO NOT send text messages
as their first contact with parents.

If you receive a text message requesting
information about your child from anyone
purporting to be a School Nurse, please
DO NOT engage.

This has been reported to the Police and
has been confirmed as a hoax.

To check the validity of any request received,
please contact the Essex Child and Family
