School Milk Scheme

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 at break time.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.  If your child is currently registered for Free School Meals there is no charge for their milk as this will be paid for by the school but you will still need to register your child and let the school know (see below).

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?

  • Go to or pick up a form from school.
  • Pay Cool Milk online, over the phone, at a local PayPoint or by cheque in instalments to suit you.
    If registering online you can pay straight away, if using a registration form you will need to wait to receive a payment request.
  • Just pay by a Tuesday for your child’s milk to start the following week.

If your child is registered for Free School Meals and you wish them to have school milk please register with Cool Milk but do not pay any money  AND let the School Office know (preferably by emailing or pop in for a consent form), to give the school permission to identify your child to Cool Milk as a child that we will pay for so that you are not sent any payment requests.
