At Tonacliffe School we believe it is beneficial for children to receive the opportunity to drink milk in school. A company called Cool Milk provides what we believe to be the best deal to parents, pupils and school alike. Parents need to register directly with Cool Milk for their child to receive milk in school; this is a simple matter of completing an online registration form preferably via their website.
Depending on the age of your child, Cool Milk will then either provide your child with milk free of charge or invoice you for payment. School milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised for pupils aged five or older at around £15 a term. Cook Milk provides a variety of ways for parents to pay including online payments, telephone payments, by cheque or at a local PayPoint. Unfortunately parents cannot pay the school directly.
We do hope you will take the time to register your child for school milk. Find out the top ten reasons to drink school milk at www.coolmilk.com/whyschoolmilk.
