Free School Meals Checking Service: 1 Hour Workshop


Free School Meals Checking Service: 1 Hour Workshop

 

fsm square 80Link2ICT offers a variety of services and solutions that can help your establishment with day-to-day processes. One of which is our hugely successful Free School Meals (FSM) Eligibility Checking Service.

The Link2ICT Free School Meals Eligibility Checking Service provides an online form, accessible through any device, which enables parents, carers (or schools on their behalf) to check their eligibility for FSM and therefore Pupil Premium funding. By linking to the Department for Education’s (DfE) Eligibility Checking Service (ECS), the Link2ICT Free School Meals Eligibility Checking Service:

  • Offers a faster, simpler, and more convenient application process
  • Delivers fast response of the notification of entitlement
  • Reduces application errors through computer assisted validation
  • Removes the need for reapplication where eligibility continues
  • Removes potential stigma as parents can apply direct
  • Saves administrative time - no more manual form filling and copying of documentation
  • Encourages reluctant parents to register for FSM entitlement allowing your school to maximise funding through Pupil Premium

Through this secure portal the data is checked against the Department for Education’s (DfE) Eligibility Checking Service (ECS) and as pupils’ circumstances frequently change, the system will make regular checks providing schools with up to date eligibility information.

The Link2ICT FSM Eligiblity Checking Service offers a number of benefits, including:

Once you subscribe to the Link2ICT FSM Eligibility Checking Service, we will provide you with credentials to log in and a starter pack including templates to help you communicate this new service to your parents/carers.
