Daily timetable

Attendance & Daily timetable

Pupils are welcome to be on school site after 8:40am when our school gates will be opened and when school staff will be on duty. Children should not arrive onto the school premises before 8.40am, unless they are involved in an official school practice or club.

The school is required to mark the attendance register twice each day; once at the start of the day and once during the afternoon session. The register will be called promptly at 8.50am and 1.10pm by each Class Teacher. The registers will close at 9.00am and 1.20pm. Children who arrive at school after 8.50am must report to the main school.

We want to see the best educational outcomes for all Gusford pupils, and good attendance is key to achieving this.

The times of the school day are:




  • 8.50 am - 12.00 noon
  • Break 10.40-10.55
  • 8.50 am – 12.15 noon
  • Break 10.40-10.55


  • 1.10 pm – 3.20 pm
  • Break 2.10-2.20pm for Y2
  • 1.10 pm – 3.30 pm

There is a break of 15 minutes during each morning for everyone but only the Reception and Key Stage 1 have a break in the afternoon.
