School milk is available for ALL children.
If your child is currently under 5, they will be receiving free milk at school, funded by the UK Government's Nursery Milk Scheme.
When your child turns 5 or if they are already over 5, you have the option to pay for their milk. We have made arrangements with the UK’s leading school milk supplier Cool Milk, to supply milk at a small subsidised daily cost.
School Milk 5 years + Free
To continue receiving free school milk once your child turns 5 years, you will need to register for Free School Meals with Nottinghamshire County Council and inform the school so they can register the order with their milk provider on your behalf.
The best way to apply is online through Nottinghamshire County Council’s public website https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/education/school-meals/free-school-meals-and-milk or by telephoning 0300 500 80 80.
Parents only need to provide their National Insurance Number, surname and date of birth.
