Cool Milk


School milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised for pupils aged five or older. Parents will need to register with Cool Milk for their child to receive this. Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a drink of semi-skimmed cow’s milk (this is the only milk that can be supplied under the scheme) during the morning each 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.
