ilk is an important part of children's diets, it provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.

Since 1st January 2015, schools across England are legally required to ensure milk is made available during the school day to all pupils who want it. Here at Adel St John we are part of The Cool Milk Scheme which delivers fresh and chilled milk to the classroom every day. By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around
£15 a term for children aged five or older.
