Cumbria County Council is obliged to ensure that free school meals are provided for children whose parents/guardians are eligible through being in receipt of a qualifying benefit. The Cumbria Advice & Support Team process Free School Meals applications. This is free for pupils attending Local Authority Maintained Schools. However, funding for this is given directly to Academies, so the LA has to make a charge to them for this service.
