School term and holiday dates

Find term and holiday dates for local authority maintained schools in Suffolk, including dates for the next school year.

Please check your school’s own website to verify the term dates and details of staff training dates.

Local Authorities have a duty to determine school term dates for local authority-maintained schools. Schools must be open to pupils for 190 days during the school year and 195 days for teachers. Schools have five staff training days to be set at their discretion.

Free schools, Voluntary Aided schools and Academies are responsible for setting their own term dates. Individual schools, may, therefore choose to follow a pattern and/or specific dates that do not match those set by us.
