Free School Milk for ALL children in Reception Class, regardless of age.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

Currently all children under the age of 5 receive free school milk. 

I am in a situation where I have two children both starting in reception class this year but one is 4 and the other turns 5 on her first day, so I have 1 child entitled to free milk and 1 who I have to pay for.

It isn’t fair on the child or acceptable that just because he or she is 5 when they start school that they aren’t entitled to the same as the other children.

Making children feel less important to others or that they may have done something wrong is unacceptable, it causes unnecessary upset and can have detrimental effects.

The age limit needs to be removed and free school milk should be available to all children in their first year of school, regardless of age.
