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 for government subsidies, school milk is free for all under fives and is subsidised at around £15 a term for children aged five and 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. 

How do I register my child?

If your child is under 5:

1. We will automatically register all children for milk before they start in our Reception class.

2. Free milk will continue until the Friday before your child's 5th birthday.  If you would like your child to continue to receive their milk you will need to register and follow the rules below:

If your child is over 5:

1. Go to and register.

2. Pay Cool Milk online, over the phone or at a local PayPoint. If registering online, you can pay straight away, if using a registration form you will need to wait to receive a payment request. 

3. Just pay by a Tuesday for your child's milk to start the following week.
