School Milk

Our school milk scheme
Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.

If your child is under five-
1. Go to or pick up a form from school.
2. Just register by a Tuesday for your child’s free milk to start the following week.

Free School Meals

It is now statutory to provide the option of milk, daily.  Our school has offered this provision for many years.  Children with an underlying entitlement to free school meals will be provided with free milk if they would like it. 

If your child would like milk and is not entitled to free school meals then please liaise directly with Coolmilk – However if your child is entitled to free school meals and you would like them to have milk then please liaise with our school office.

 Please note children in KS1, who are part of the universal free school meals, are not part of the free milk scheme unless they have been accepted as eligible for free school meals.
