School milk is available for ALL children
If your child is currently under 5, they are eligible to receive free milk at school, funded by the UK Government's Nursery Milk Scheme. However, you still need to register them so please see what you need to do below for instructions.
If your child is over 5 and eligible for Free School Meals, then they are also eligible to receive free milk at school. However, you still need to register them so please see what you need to do below for instructions.
When your child turns 5 or if they are already over 5 and they are not eligible for Free School Meals, 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 see what you need to do below for instructions.
What you need to do:
- Visit coolmilk.com as soon as possible and select "Register your child for milk", then follow the on-screen instructions to register and pay if applicable.
- Ask the school office for a registration form - send your completed form to Cool Milk, and they will send you a payment request.
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.
Should you have any queries regarding your child's registration or milk supply in general, please do not hesitate to contact Cool Milk directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0844 854 2913.
