Changes to FSM Entitlement April 2018

Please find below a summary outlining the changes to FSM entitlement due to the introduction of Universal Credit and the phasing out of other income-based benefits.

We have also attached a report definition that can be imported in to SIMS via Reports/Import.  The report will identify any pupils that have a FSM end date on or after 1 April 2018 that you may wish to investigate further.

During the transitional period it is expected that FSM end dates will only be entered where a parent has withdrawn the pupils FSM claim or the pupil has transferred from a school in Scotalnd or Wales where FSM entitlement rules are different.

If you have any queries regarding FSM entitlement please do not hestiate to contact us for clarification.
