School Milk Information for Parents Aug 23
21 August 2023
Our school milk scheme
Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils, and we would like to invite you to register your child. School milk is free for under-5s, and for over-5s it is available at a subsidised* price of 28pence per day.
Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused. For more information on how milk can benefit children visit www.coolmilk.com/why-milk-is-great.
How to register
If your child is under five:
- Register online at www.coolmilk.com
