Ladycross Infant and Nursery School

Cool Milk


We work with with “Cool Milk” to make milk available for all children. School milk is free for under-5s, including nursery, and for our pupil premium / free school meal children of all ages. For 5s and over, who are not pupil premium / free school meals, it is available at a subsidised* price of 28p per day.


Cool Milk is a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk, provided every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. School milk will not only provide children 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


Where parents have informed us of allergies or dietary requirements which would mean that milk should not be offered, we have removed these children from the registration. We have included vegetarian children in the registration, but have not included children following vegan, diary free or halal diets. Unfortunately, at this stage, there is no alternative offer to cows’ milk.


Do I need to register?


Our under 5s and our pupil premium / free school meal children are already registered by Ladycross – parents do not need to register.
