Every child who is under 5 years old is entitled to receive a 189ml serving of milk each day. Once your child reaches 5 years old you can buy subsidised milk for around £15 a term (22p a day) from Cool Milk.
You will need to register your child for this scheme.
Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a carton of semi-skimmed milk everyday, which is delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is re-hydrating and energy boosting it bridges the long gap between breakfast and lunch and helps children to stay focused.

Milk is completely free for all children aged under five and subsidised for children aged five or older. Just register at www.coolmilk.com/register or complete the attached registration form.
Please note that milk will continue be free for children who are entitled and have applied for “Free School Meals” once they are 5 years old. Information on FSM can be viewed here.
