If you would like your child to receive milk in school, parents will need to log onto the School Milk Website in order to register their child and the pay the dairy directly for their milk. This is a simple process and once you have registered there is no need to register again.
The school no longer collects payments.
Register online at www.schoolmilkuk.co.uk or via the post with a registration you can download here or collect from the school reception. Should you wish to opt into this scheme, your child will recieve 1/3 pint carton of fresh, chilled, semi-skimmed milk each day to drink. This cost of this milk is 16.5p per day, payable in advance for the following full term.
Payments are required to reach the School Milk UK in plenty of time for them to process your order and payment in advance of the next delivery. This could take a week to show on the school system.
