Manage FSM Eligibility

You can add FSM eligibility for students in bulk from Admin > Students > Manage FSM.

Top Tip: You can also do this individually from student's profiles - Recording a student as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) from their profile


Manage FSM allows you to manage FSM eligibility by looking at all students, a specific year, or a form group, rather than looking into each student's individual profile. 

The information displayed can be exported as either a Word, Excel or PDF document. You can also display the report as either Landscape or Portrait.

Once the group has been selected click Choose.

Top Tip: If you only wish to look at those students with current or previous FSM period ensure you select Only Students with Current or Previous FSM Periods.  Once the students are listed you have the option to search by UPN for a specific student.


For each student you will have a record of any FSM eligibility periods, whether they are recorded as claiming FSM and the option to edit or add new periods of eligibility. 

To change a student to Claiming FSM click on the red cross to make it a green tick.
