Cool Milk

Free Milk for Statutory Free School Meal Pupils

In conjunction with the Department of Education's new School Food Plan, our school is providing a free 189 ml portion of low-fat milk to children entitled to statutory free school meals.

If your child is eligible for statutory free school meals please contact the school office and this can be organised for you.

School Milk

By registering your child for our school milk they will receive a 189 ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. 

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.

How do I register my child?

If your child is under five:-

  1. Go to or pick up a form from the school office.
  2. Just register by a Tuesday for your child's free milk to start the following week
  3. Free milk will continue until the Friday before your child's fifth birthday. You will receive a payment request over three weeks before this time - if you wish for your child to continue to receive school milk simple make a payment.

If your child is over five:-

  1. Go to or pick up a form from the school office.
  2. Pay Cool Milk as requested.
  3. Just pay by a Tuesday for your child's milk to start the following week.
