School term & holiday dates

Find out the dates your child is expected to be in school and when the school holidays take place

Each year your child is expected to attend school for 190 days. These days are spread across three terms; autumn term, spring term and summer term.

Non-pupil days: local upper and high schools will usually work their feeder primary or middle schools to identify five days during the school year to use as professional development (non-pupil) days. To find out when your child's school will be having a non-pupil day please contact the school directly.

Search for your individual school

The decision when to have non-pupil days also known as 'PD days' is the responsibility of individual schools, not Suffolk County Council. Schools should make the dates of non pupils days available to parents and carers (usually on their website and/or by letter).
