Daily Free School Meals Allowance

There is no priority between selection channels, instead, the Daily FSM Allowance is reduced based on the timing of the transactions (e.g. if a pre-order was made by a parent via ParentPay/Schoolcomms parent selection and then an Admin user marks a meal as taken on the Manager App, the Daily FSM Allowance will be used by the parent pre-order then the Manager App).

A Students Daily FSM Allowance can be utilised by any of the selected channels;

  • Manager App
  • ParentPay/Schoolcomms parent selection
  • Tablet
  • Whiteboard.

All databases have the Daily FSM Allowance set to a default value of £3.00. School Administrators can set the site level config Daily FSM Allowance [1] which will override the database level default value.

Go to System > Sites [2] > select a Site > Meal Selection tab [3]

When you have set the new FSM default value click Save.
