Cool Milk

Our School Milk Scheme

It is a legal requirement for all maintained schools to make milk available for drinking during school hours. 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.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised at around £15 a term for children aged five or older. If your child is older than five but is entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) the school has to pay for their milk.

Why should I register my child?

School milk provides your child with essential nutrients. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused. It is best for parents to register rather than school, because the Coolmilk system then deals directly with parents for invoicing and payment etc. If your child is FSM, then the school can register your child.
