Pupils’ School Milk
School age children up to their 5th birthday are entitled to free milk, but we are able to offer fresh milk daily to children at Beacon Rise Primary school through a scheme set up jointly by the Local Education Authority, and School Milk Services Limited. The milk is subsidised in part from EC funding and is available to all children aged from five to eleven years.
You would pay just £1.25 a week for your child to receive 200ml carton of semi-skimmed milk at the morning break period. The method of payment for this scheme is in advance direct to School Milk Services, by cheque, postal order (made payable to School Milk Services Ltd) or credit card payment.
More information is available from the school office
