Cool Milk

Cool Milk


School milk at mid-morning break is an important part of a child’s diet. Milk provides a number of health benefits and social opportunities that ensure children get the most out of their school day.


As part of the School Food Plan, all maintained primary, infant, junior and secondary schools are now legally required to make milk available for drinking during school hours. Free school milk is available for under-fives as well. Cool Milk is here to help schools across the UK achieve the ‘Milk and Dairy’ standard.


School milk is…

  • FREE for children under the age of five.
  • FREE to children receiving or entitled to free school meals.
  • Subsidised for all other children in primary education.


If your child is over five and you would like them to receive milk at school, please follow the instructions below.

  2. Milk usually costs around £14 a term. By registering online, you’ll be able to make a payment straightaway. If your payment is received by 5pm on a Tuesday, your child will receive milk the following week.
  3. Your child will start to gain all the nutritional benefits from a daily serving of chilled milk in the classroom.
