Milk and Fruit

Milk and Fruit


As part of our commitment to a healthy lifestyle, fruit is available at playtimes for a small charge. Milk is also available for sale to Junior children.  Milk is provided free of charge to all Nursery and Infant children.


The cost of milk is £1.40 a week for Junior Pupils

The cost of fruit is £1.50 a week for Nursery, Infant and Junior Pupils

The administration of payments for milk and fruit has become increasingly burdensome so as a result:

  •  We will no longer accept payments on a weekly or daily basis.

  • Payment will need to be paid TO THE OFFICE on a half termly basis either in cash or paid online using the codes below

As a result you will actually only be paying for 36 out of the 39 weeks your child is in school.  This means you will get 1 FREE week per term.  There will be no confusion for pupils, parents and teachers about who has paid and whether your child is on the list to receive milk and fruit. 

If you would like to pay for milk and/or fruit half termly in cash or online please note the following payment dates -   Please pay:


Week beginning 18th December for the period of January to Half-Term


Week beginning 12th February for the period of February (after Half-Term) to the Easter Holidays


Week beginning 26th March for the period of April (after the Easter Holidays) - May Half-Term.


Week beginning 21st May for the period of June (after Half-Term) until the end of Term.


Payment MUST be made the week before a holiday to enable class lists to be produced in time for the first day back after a holiday to ensure that pupils receive what you are paying for.


Please contact the office if you would like information on how to make payment online as you will need your child’s unique code along with the code for Milk & Snack which is PSS.     

Listed below are the amounts for milk and/or fruit paid on a half-termly 6 week basis.


Milk                  £8.40

Fruit                 £9.00

Milk & Fruit  £17.40


When paying online, you do not need to put in the reference whether your payment is for milk or fruit as we will know what the payment is for due to the amount paid. You just need to use PSS along with your child’s unique code. Please see our website for more information about paying online for other items also.

If you have any issues with this change, please contact the School Office.  If you do not wish to pay half termly amounts we are happy for you to send a piece of fruit for your child to eat at snack time.  We hope that this will make the process more efficient for all and eliminate issues about who has paid or not as class lists should not change after the first week.  This will help us reduce our costs for fruit and milk purchased as we will only be ordering enough for the number of pupils who are paying for it.
