Would you like your child to receive milk at school?

Cool Milk provides school milk at All Saints’. Milk for the under-fives is free but parents should still register for their child to receive milk by clicking the link below.

The process of ordering and paying for your child’s milk is quick and easy and you can pay for each term (3 times a year) or for the full academic year.

If you would like your child to enjoy milk at school, please register online at Cool Milk.  

If you choose to opt into this scheme, your child will receive a carton of fresh chilled semi-skimmed milk each school day, to drink mid-morning. 

Further information for parents may be found here.

Please note that you should only register if you pay for your child’s milk, if you are in receipt of benefits which qualify your child for Free School Meals, please speak to the school office as milk may be free.
