The threats say that a bomb has been placed on school grounds and it will be detonated if demands for cash are not met.

"Schools have been visited by police to reassure them that the incident is being treated as a hoax and address any concerns".

The Community Security Trust (CST) urged Jewish schools to "continue as normal" after the threats from an unknown source, believed to be based in north America, were sent to schools around the country, demanding money.

A number schools across the United Kingdom have been evacuated after receiving hoax bomb threats, the Mirror reports.

Northumbria police said more than 35 schools in its region had received emails threatening to detonate a bomb unless money was handed over.

It has not yet been revealed whether any have been received in South Yorkshire, but Derbyshire Police said a number of schools and colleges in its area have been affected.

"We take all incidents of this nature extremely seriously and an investigation into the emails in question is underway".

Brookfield Primary School in Highgate was evacuated on Friday after receiving a malicious email.

"Many similar instances have been reported across the country and we do not believe any of the threats being made in the emails to be credible or viable". "Schools have been spoken to by officers to provide some reassurance but nobody has been asked to evacuate".

A spokesman said: "We have received reports of threatening emails received by many of our region's schools". There have been no arrests.
