School Milk

School Milk is available for all children If your child is currently under 5, they should already be receiving free milk under the UK Government’s Nursery Milk Scheme, facilitated by Cool Milk.  When your child turns 5 or if they are already over 5, you have the option to pay for their milk. We have made arrangements with the UK’s leading school milk supplier, Cool Milk, to supply milk at a subsidised cost of 22p per day.

What you need to do:

If you wish to continue your child’s milk provision following their 5th birthday, please complete the registration process below. Visit as soon as possible and select “Register your child for milk here”, then follow the on-screen instructions to register and pay OR

Ask the school office for a registration form – send your completed form to Cool Milk, and they will send you a payment request. If your child is over 5 and entitled to benefit-based free school meals, The Minster Nursery & Infant school will fund the cost of their milk on your behalf. A portion of fresh, chilled milk at mid-morning break provides protein, calcium and other vital nutrients, important for your child’s growth and development.

It’s also a great way to bridge the gap between breakfast and lunch, re-hydrating your child and helping them to concentrate in class.

Should you have any queries regarding your child’s registration or milk supply, please do not hesitate to contact Cool Milk directly at or call 0844 854 2913.
