School Milk

Our school has introduced a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils 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 22p per day.

Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, during morning break time, which is delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. 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.
