School Milk Scheme


Our school provides a milk scheme that, from January 2015, will be available to all our pupils. The cost of school milk is subsidised for pupils aged five or older at a cost of 22p per day. Children under 5 & children in receipt of Free School Meals (NOT Universal Infant Free Schools) are entitled to free school milk. All children who wish to receive milk at school need to register. Please see the 'Letter to Parents' below which gives you further details.

Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, which is delivered fresh and chilled. Pupils will be provided with milk during the morning break. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused.

How to register

Milk is completely free for all children aged under five and is subsidised for children aged five or older. Simply register at or complete a registration form available from our school.
