Provision of Free Milk
The Authority operates two schemes for providing milk free of charge to pupils, namely the under the age of 5 scheme operated in accordance with the National Milk Re-imbursement Unit (NMRU) and the Key Stage 1 scheme in accordance with The National Assembly for Wales Regulations 2001.
Both schemes receive a subsidy from the EC School Milk Scheme. Free school milk is also provided for pupils over the age of 5 in individual cases on medical grounds and where children attend Special Schools or Units.
Schools are allowed to make their own local arrangements, if they wish to introduce financially self supporting milk schemes.
