TBTL Announces Free Summer School For Children On Free School Meals

Theatre by the Lake are delighted to announce a partnership with Allerdale Libraries that offers a place on their upcoming summer school to children on benefits-related Free School Meals or are from families who've been adversely impacted by the pandemic.

TBTL’s professional theatre-makers will be offering two weeks of fun, games and creative activities for young people aged 7-11, to increase skills and confidence. Participants are invited to step behind the scenes, fire up their imaginations and bring their own stories to life. They’ll spend their time imagining, playing, creating, learning new skills and making new friends at Theatre by the Lake. They’ll also enjoy a free lunchtime meal every day.

Each week will have a different programme, so there’s the option to book for just one week or the full two weeks.

The summer school is part of the Cumbria Holiday Activity Programme, which is funded by the Department for Education’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme 2021.

It’s open to children living in Cumbria who self-identify as either receiving a benefits-related Free School Meal, are classed as children looked after (CLA), have an educational health care plan (EHCP), are classed as having a special educational need or disability (SEND), are highlighted as being at risk of NEET, not attending education, or unlikely to find employment or suitable training opportunities, or families who have been adversely impacted by the pandemic.
