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, 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.

We are now working in partnership with Cool Milk to provide milk to our children.

School milk is free for all children who are eligible to receive income based free school meals.  For all of our other pupils, the cost of the milk is subsidised.

Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml carton of semi-skimmed milk every day, which is delivered fresh and chilled. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting, it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused.

What You need To Do:

Visit and select the ‘Register your child for milk here’ option on the main
home page.

After registration, you may then make a pre-payment via your online account.  Please note that milk costs cannot be reimbursed if a child misses a day at school, as you have to order in advance.

Orders need to be made by 5pm on Tuesdays for milk to be received the following week.

If your child is entitled to free school meals you still need to register and order milk for your child.

Should you have any queries regarding your child’s registration or milk supply in general,
please do not hesitate to contact Cool Milk directly on 0800 321 3248 or via email to
