School Milk

School milk is available for ALL children


If your child is currently under 5, we’re delighted to confirm that we have arranged for them to receive free milk at school, funded by the UK Government's Nursery Milk Scheme.


When your child turns 5, or if they are already over 5, you have the option to pay for their milk.  We have made arrangements with the UK’s leading school milk supplier, Cool Milk, to supply milk at a small subsidised daily cost.  Please note if your child is entitled to statutory free school meals then they will also be entitled to free school milk.


What you need to do:


Visit and select "Register your child for school milk",
then follow the on-screen instructions to register and pay.


A portion of fresh, chilled milk at mid-morning break provides protein, calcium and other vital nutrients, important for your child's growth and development.  It's also a great way to bridge the gap between breakfast and lunch, re-hydrating your child and helping them to concentrate in class.


Please ignore this letter if your child is already registered for over 5’s milk.


Should you have any queries regarding your child's registration or milk supply in general, please do not hesitate to contact Cool Milk customer services on 0333 400 1199.
