  1. 1767Q – if you get this query please check the FSM end date for the relevant pupil. Because of the new FSM entitlement rules that were implemented from a April 2018 for the roll out period of the Universal Credit all FSM’s are protected until March 2022. The DfE will only expect schools to report FSM end dates if the parents have withdrawn the claim, or the claim did not originate in England. To resolve the query if the parent has not withdrawn the claim or the claim was not made in England, remove the end date and save the record. Create and validate your return again.
