Milk & Snacks
At Wheatfield Primary School, we run a school milk scheme with Cool Milk. School milk at mid-morning break is an important part of a child’s diet. As part of the School Food Plan, all schools are legally required to make milk available for drinking during school hours.
- At Wheatfield Primary School all children who are under 5 years of age receive a free carton of milk each school day.
- Children entitled to Free School Meals (not to be confused with the Universal Free School Meals scheme) will also receive a free carton of milk each school day.
- If your children would like to receive milk after their 5th birthday, Cool Milk can supply milk for a subsidised cost (around £14 per term). Please see the link below with registration information:
Wheatfield Primary School takes part in the ‘National Fruit and Vegetable Scheme’, which enables children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable for snack time each day. Children in Years 3 to 6 may bring in a fruit or vegetable snack from home each day for their snack.
