Cool milk

 

School milk at mid-morning break is an important part of a child’s diet. Milk provides a number of health benefits and social opportunities that ensure children get the most out of their school day.

 

As set out in the School Food Plan, we make milk available for drinking during school hours. Free school milk is available free of charge for under-fives and also for those pupils in receipt of benefits-based free school meals. 

 

If you would like to purchase milk for your child to drink during the school day this is available at a subsidised rate for 5-11 year olds through our provider, Cool Milk.  

 

To register your child for Cool milk, please visit their website or complete their form (see below).
