2. ORDERING FROM US – PARENTS AND GUARDIANS
2.1 Before an order can be placed with us, you are required to complete the registration process, either online or via a paper Registration Form which can be obtained from our website or from your child’s school.
2.2 Acceptance of your order takes place when we receive your payment.
2.3 We may refuse to accept an order if there has been a pricing or product description error.
2.4 Delivery will be made by our selected subcontractor. Delivery will be made to your child’s school and the milk is intended for consumption by your child during standard school hours. It is the school’s responsibility to inform us of their holidays and other closure dates. It is the school’s responsibility to pass the milk to the relevant children for consumption on the school premises – we cannot provide a refund if we have delivered milk but the school fails to distribute it correctly.
2.5 Delivery will commence as soon as possible after acceptance of order; typically, if an order is placed by 5pm on Tuesdays then deliveries will commence in the following week provided that the child’s school is open.
3. PRICING AND PAYMENTS – PARENTS AND GUARDIANS
3.1 The daily cost per 189ml portion of milk will be approximately 26p. This cost may vary depending on the area in which your child’s school is situated. The exact cost relevant to your order will be detailed on your payment request. Children under the age of five are entitled to one 189ml portion of milk on each day that they attend an eligible establishment for 2 or more hours – this is funded by the Department of Health.
3.2 Our prices are reviewed periodically.
3.3 Payment can be made online via credit or debit card at www.coolmilk.com. Other payment methods will be detailed on your payment request.

4.2 If your child moves school (including moving from an infant school to a junior school) please notify us 14 days in advance of the move. If you wish your child to continue to receive milk at the new school then, provided the school is part of the scheme, we will transfer the account. If the new school is not part of the scheme we will refund any outstanding credit within 28 days from the date we receive notification, subject to deduction of a £2.20 administration fee.
4.3 In respect of term-time absences, to enable us to suspend your child’s milk and organise credit to your account, you must notify us of any holiday or long-term absence by 5pm on Tuesday for it to apply the following week.
