We would like you to use a one way system for pick up at the bottom gate.
Please queue down school lane, we will call the children to the parents at the front of the queue, you will then leave towards the Arms houses exit (where the zigzags are).
Could pre-school parents also wait in the lane when collecting, you are not permitted to enter the school site at the end of the day.
All children with siblings will be grouped at the bottom playground by 3.15pm for collection.
Adults will supervise this and ensure safety.

The oldest children should be encouraged to walk a short distance to school to minimise traffic congestion and to help with social distancing.
They should also walk from the school to a collection point with their parents, they don’t need to be dropped directly outside the entrance, this causes congestion and upsets residents.
Parents must not congregate at the ‘drop-off’ point, they must instead arrive on time and then depart.
Older children may be left to wait outside the school gate but must practice social distancing.
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."
