School Milk

All primary school children who are eligible to receive free school meals are also entitled to free school milk.

Milk is available to all other primary school children for £27.30 per year.  This is payable at the start of the school year.  

The amount of milk provided is one-third of a pint per day during term time.  

The charge for milk is subsidised by the European Community and the Welfare Food Reimbursement Unit.

Children that have milk at school will normally have it just after morning play time.

 

Schools Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS)

 

The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS) helps your child achieve 5 A DAY.

If your child is in KS1 they will receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable every school day.  This provides them with one of their 5 a day fruit and vegetable portions.

There is a different piece of fruit or vegetable every day. We get various fruits and vegetables delivered with this scheme, usually there are bananas, apples, pears, carrots, tomatoes, and easy-peel citrus fruits such as satsumas. Sometimes we get raisins and have been known to get small cucumbers, so the children get to try a wide variety of fruit and vegetables. 

The teachers find that children are more receptive to trying new fruits and vegetables when they are in class situations and they see other children and their friends eating the different fruit and vegetables.

All the fruit and vegetables are washed before they are handed out, which is usually at morning play time.  Reception children get their fruit and vegetable portion with their milk.

 

You can find out more about this scheme on the NHS Choices Website.
