School Milk

During the Coronavirus school closure period Cool Milk have asked for parents to not register their child for milk until return dates/start dates have been confirmed.  For New Year R parents of children under 5, the school will inform Cool Milk of start dates and eligable children.  Thank you.

Registering for our school milk scheme

Dear Parent/ Guardian,

Here at Marchwood C of E Infant School we believe that eating healthily and being active plays a vital role in our pupils’ mental and physical development whilst at school. This is why our school offers free milk for under-fives and subsidised milk for over-fives. To ensure your child doesn’t miss out on school milk it is important that you register as soon as possible.


How to register

Register at or using the enclosed form. Parents can register by a Tuesday for milk to start the following week, but we recommend that you register as soon as possible to ensure your child receives milk from their very first day of school.


Your child will then receive a carton of semi-skimmed milk delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day, which provides a host of benefits:

  • Taking five minutes to drink school milk provides important social time for children.
  • School milk is excellent for hydration, supporting brain function including concentration, memory and creativity
  • School milk boosts children’s energy between breakfast and lunch, helping them to be ready to learn.
  • Being involved in the school milk scheme can develop key skills including responsibility, independence, numeracy and manners.
  • Children receive the ideal serving of fresh, chilled milk delivered to their classroom.
    Free milk will be provided until the Friday before your child’s fifth birthday, and at that point you will be asked if you wish them to continue to enjoy school milk at a subsidised price.
    If you have any questions about school milk please visit or contact Cool Milk directly on 0800 142 2972.
    Kind regards,

    Mr.Stuart Calvert
