Milk Scheme

West Row Academy is part of the ‘Cool Milk’ scheme, enabling registered pupils to receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk, delivered fresh and chilled, to their classroom every day.

Thanks to government subsidies, milk is delivered free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older. Milk 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. Find out the top ten reasons to drink school milk at Cool Milk’s website.
