All schools will close Friday 03 April 2020
this will be the last day of the school term.
All schools will re-open on Monday 20 April 2020
If a school needs to make up for time lost due to unforeseen school closures, they may reduce the length of the Easter break by staying open up to and including Wednesday 08 April 2020
Schools are required to be open for a minimum of 167 days at post-primary level and 183 days at primary level. School summer holidays are not standardised and schools may use discretionary days to determine the precise start and end of the school year.
Schools will normally re-open during the week in which 1st September falls. However, the school year may start in the week prior to that in which 1st September falls if this is necessary in order to meet the overall requirement of a minimum of 167 days at post-primary level or 183 days at primary level.
You should check the exact dates with your school.
