The School Day

School opens at 8.35am after which time children go into class where they settle to an activity. 

Please do not arrive at school before this time.

  • Registration is from 8.35 – 8.45am.
  • Morning break is 10.30 – 10.45am.
  • Lunchtime is 12.15 – 1.15pm.

All Key Stage 1 children have a flexible afternoon playtime.

School finishes at 3.15pm and children are not permitted to be playing in the grounds after this time.

If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child) please let us know.  This avoids any confusion or upset.

You can view this year’s term dates here. They are also displayed on the school noticeboard.

Non -pupil days are dates when the school is open for staff training but not for children.


Bishops Tawton Primary School absolutely deserves the fantastic reputation it has got. My children regularly come home with stories about their learning, their teachers and their friends."
