Our school milk scheme – “Cool Milk”
Abbey Park First & Nursery School and Abbey Park Pre-School provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils (up to Year 4) and we would like to invite you to register your child. School milk is free for under-5s, and for over-5s it is available at a subsidised* price of around £16 per term.
Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. 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. For more information on how milk can benefit children visit www.coolmilk.com/why-milk-is-great.
