Our School Day
Children can arrive at Blenheim from 8:40am and may enter the school and their classrooms via the Reception, KS1 and KS2 playgrounds. Please speak to your child's class teacher for more information. Registration begins at 8:50am and closes at 9:00am.
Morning break is at 10:20am and children may bring a healthy snack to eat at this time. This should be either a fruit or vegetable snack in accordance with our Healthy Schools status.
Lunch begins at 12:00pm for Reception, 12:15pm for KS1 and 12:30pm for KS2. Lunch break lasts for one hour and children have the choice of ordering school meals, bringing a packed lunch or going home for lunch. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for free school meals, and older children may be eligible if their parents receive certain benefits. If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, please contact the school office. Packed lunches should be healthy and balanced meals. Children should not have chocolate, sweets, milkshakes or fizzy drinks in their lunchboxes and we also ask that parents avoid giving nuts, including peanut butter. This is due to the risk to those children with severe allergies.
The school day ends at 3:10pm for Reception, 3:15pm for KS1 and 3:20pm for KS2. Children will exit via their fire doors. Upstairs classrooms meet parents on the KS2 playground or designated door onto the field.
