Christmas is coming up fast, and no one is more excited for it than the county's children. 

But when do Suffolk's schools break up for Christmas?

The current autumn term for Suffolk County Council schools started on Wednesday, September 1, and will run until Friday, December 17.

This means the Christmas holidays will last between December 18 and January 3. 

A non pupil PD day on January 4 will see students return on January 5. 

This gives children a total of 18 days off.

Academies and free schools can set their own term dates, and parents will need to check the school's websites for details.
