Cool Milk


Our school milk scheme

Did you know our school has a school milk scheme with Cool Milk? 

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.


“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 five please click here to visit Cool Milk or download the form at the bottom of the page.

Just register by a Tuesday for your child’s free milk to start the following week.

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 over five

Click here to visit Cool Milk or download the form at the bottom of the page.

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.


“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.
