Our School Milk Scheme
Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semiskimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.
“How much does it cost?”
Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.
“Why should I register my child?”
School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.

All children aged four to six years old in infant, primary and special schools are entitled to a free piece of fruit or fresh vegetable at school each day. The fruit is given out at breaktime to ensure that the fruit supplied is additional, not just replacing fruit and vegetables that might have been eaten at lunchtime anyway.
The scheme is part of the national 5 A DAY programme.
The School is committed to the Government's Healthy Schools campaign. We try to encourage the children to understand the value of healthy food. We also run a scheme which prohibits sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks in lunchboxes. Please do not add such items to your child(ren)’s lunch as it is not only not healthy for them, it is also unfair on those children not receiving such items in their lunchboxes.
