School Milk




Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils following a change in the School Food Plan by the Government and we would like to invite you to register your child. School milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised for pupils aged five or older at around £16 a term (currently 24p per carton, rising to 25p carton on 1st April 2022).


How to register - Milk is completely free for all children aged under five and is subsidised for children aged five or older.

If you have any questions regarding school milk please visit or contact Cool Milk directly on 0844 854 2913. More information on milk is also available from the school.


Please note that children who do not wish to have the milk continually will be withdrawn from the scheme, as you can appreciate this scheme can become wasteful so please ensure that your child will want to have the milk daily.
