Cool Milk

Our school milk scheme

Did you know our school has a school milk scheme for Key Stage 1 children? 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. Find out the top ten reasons to drink school milk at


How do I register my child?

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.
3. Free milk will continue until the Friday before your child’s fifth birthday. You will receive a payment request three weeks before this time - if you wish for your child to continue to receive school milk, simply make a payment. If your child is entitled to (means tested) Free School Meals and would like to continue having milk, the school will pay for this on your behalf - please apply at the school office.

If your child is over five
