New Intake: Oak Class 2023/24

3rd July Parent Welcome Meeting

Welcome to Chawton CE Primary School and thank you for visiting our website.


We are a small but successful and exciting school on the outskirts of Alton. As expressed in our school vision, we believe that every child should live life to the full. This is why our curriculum provision makes the most of learning outdoors - including Forest School weekly in our youngest Oak class, enrichment activities such as school trips and visitors and making learning fun and engaging for everyone. This includes using a wide range of resources, such as Ipads, laptops and practical activities. Our gallery shows many of these exciting activities taking place.

Our school milk scheme

Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?

By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”

Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsidised at around £18 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”

School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.


“How do I register my child?”

If your child is under five-

  1. Go to
  2. Just register by a Tuesday for your child’s free milk to start the following week.
  3. Free milk will continue until the Friday before your child’s fifth birthday. You will receive a payment request three weeks before this time- if you wish for your child to continue to receive school milk simply make a payment.

If your child is over five-

  1. Go to
  2. Pay Cool Milk online, over the phone or at a local PayPoint.
  3. Just pay by a Tuesday for your child’s milk to start the following week.
