Although the weather may not be showing any evidence of brighter days, summer is in fact on its way.

Whilst we can only pray for brighter and warmer nights ahead, one thing that is inevitable is the summer holidays. Schools across the country will soon break up for the annual six-week break - but when will this happen?

Across Lancashire, different schools have slightly different days when they will be breaking up for the summer break, so it's strongly advised that parents and guardians check their child's individual school arrangements for set dates.

To check individual school dates, you can search for the establishment and have a look at the term time calendar. This will also include the school's dedicated five inset days, which will occur during opening times.

However, a holiday framework has been established by Lancashire County Council to cover the period of Autumn 2023 to Summer 2026.
