COOL MILK SCHEME
In partnership with Cool Milk, our school provides a milk scheme which is available to all of our pupils. Milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised for pupils aged five or older at around £15.00 a term.
Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a carton of semi-skimmed milk everyday, which is 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.

My child is under five?
Unless you tell us you do not wish your child to participate, the school will register your child for milk on admission to Wickham Common. Free milk will continue until the Friday before your child’s fifth birthday. If you wish your child to continue to receive school milk you will need to register with Cool Milk (see below).
My child is five or older?
Register online as soon as possible. Shortly after registering you will receive a payment request. You can pay Cool Milk either online, over the phone, at a local PayPoint or by cheque in half-termly, termly or annual instalments.
Please pay by Tuesday 5pm for your child’s milk to start the following week.
If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, they can also receive free milk. Please speak to a member of the school office to arrange this.
