School Meals and Milk

All pupils receive free fruit each day.

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 all under-fives and is subsidised for pupils aged five or older.

Cool Milk is the UK’s leading school milk supplier, working in partnership with early years groups, schools, and local authorities. We help to supply free and subsidised school milk to children in pre-schools, nurseries, and primary schools.

Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a carton of semi-skimmed milk every day, which is 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.
