We have chosen Fresh Pastures Limited, t/a School Milk UK, to supply our school milk from the start of the new term.
If you would like your child to receive milk at school, you can register online at www.schoolmilkuk.co.uk
If you opt into this scheme, your child will receive a 189ml carton of fresh chilled semi-skimmed milk each school day, to drink mid-morning. The cost of this milk depends on the number of school days in each term (accounting for inset days, bank holidays and school holidays) and is payable in advance prior to each half term, or you can pay for the full academic year in advance. You can pay for your child’s milk online using PayPal or a credit or debit card in four easy steps.
Please visit the School Milk UK website at www.schoolmilk.co.uk for details on how this scheme works and how to register, order, pay and manage your account online.
Benefits of drinking cow’s milk include:
- A portion of milk can aid concentration in class by ensuring your child is fully hydrated, and a drink of milk can also boost your child’s energy levels
- Milk is rich in calcium, which is essential during childhood and teen years for the growth and development of bones
- A 189ml carton of semi-skimmed milk contains less fat than popular snacks such as crisps or chocolate, and because of its nutritional value, milk is a healthier alternative to fill the gap between breakfast and lunch
If your child suffers an allergy to cow’s milk, School Milk UK can offer goat’s milk or soya milk1.
School Milk UK’s online ordering and payment system is fully secure. You will be asked to enter a valid email address and create a password when registering your child.
School Milk UK does not retain your personal details, except for your email address. Your email address is only used to send you a reminder to log back into your account and order for the following term.
In purchasing School Milk, not only are you helping your child’s nutritional needs, you are also helping to support their education, because School Milk UK gives a rebate of new sales back to the school at the end of the academic year, allowing your child’s school to purchase any equipment that is needed to help to support learning at this school.
We look forward to serving your child with fresh chilled milk.
