At Bovingdon Primary Academy we have always provided an option of a daily carton of milk, free for all under-fives and subsidised for pupils aged five or older for an approximate cost of £15.00 per term. This service is provided by Cool Milk.

Each pupil that registers with Cool Milk will receive a carton of semi-skimmed milk every day, which is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom. Find out the top ten reasons to drink school milk at
