Currently children under the age of 5 have been receiving free milk at school, funded by the UK Government’s Nursery Milk scheme. When your child turns 5, milk continues to be available at a subsidised cost per term, this is via our milk supplier “Cool Milk”.
Drinking a portion of milk at mid-morning break offers protein, calcium and other vital nutrients, important for growth and development. It can also be a sensible way to bridge the gap between breakfast and lunch.
What you need to do:
If your child is currently under 5:
- Your child is currently receiving free milk at school as part of the UK Government’s Nursery Milk scheme.
- Simply register at Cool Milk and make payment at least ten days before your child turns 5 in order to continue with the scheme.
If your child is aged 5 or over:
- Visit Cool Milk and select the “Register your child for milk here” option on the main page. After registration, you may then make a pre-payment via your online account for the remaining half-term, term or academic year
If your child is currently over the age of 5 and entitled to statutory free school meals, there is no need to register. Simply speak to the school for further information.
Should you have any queries regarding your child’s registration or milk supply in general, please contact Cool Milk directly on 0800 321 3248 or via email to email@example.com.
