Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils and we would like to invite you to register your child. School milk is free for under-5s, and for over-5s it is available at a subsidised rate.

Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused.

School Meals Provided by Fresha


At Fresha, we believe healthy children learn better, through improved concentration and energy levels. Healthy diets also result in improved behaviour and attendance at school.

We will provide the most nutritious meals; we want to make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of your children.

A team of chefs and a nutritionist put our carefully designed seasonal menus together. Our menus incorporate the required portions of fruit and seasonal vegetables; milk and dairy, meat, fish and proteins. All of our ingredients are sourced from the best suppliers in the West Country. Our meals are low in fat, low in sugar and low in salt. They are also carefully planned to ensure your children maintain the right balance of energy and concentration levels for their afternoons of learning.

Benefits of Fresha School Meals

  • Your children will benefit from the healthiest school meal provision available.
  • Our healthy school meals ensure children have energy and concentration in the afternoons, enabling them to get the most out of their learning and activities.
  • Our allergen training ensures that our kitchen teams identify individual children with specific dietary and allergen requirements and ensure that these requirements are met.

As Fresha’s Owner and Director, I strongly and passionately believe in the delivery of healthy and nutritious meals to children. I have two boys that attend a local state primary school; the supply of nutritious meals to children is a cause close to my heart.

The same is true for many of Fresha's staff, whose children also attend Devon schools. Under my direction, the whole Fresha team works together, in a caring and diligent way to provide the best school meals possible. Because what your children eat matters.

Packed Lunch

Children may, if they wish, bring a packed lunch, instead of the cooked meal. These are eaten in the classroom under the supervision of a mealtime assistant.  A balanced, healthy lunch box with minimal sugary snacks is strongly encouraged.  Cans/bottles of fizzy drink should not be brought into school.  Squash or water are permitted with lunch boxes but bottles for use in the classroom during lesson time should contain water only.  Sweets are not permitted at school.  If there is a need for a snack at breaktime children are allowed to have fruit, cereal bar or other healthy snacks.
