The next break for children in primary school is the February Mid-term Break.

February 2018 mid-term break
All primary schools will close on Thursday 15th February 2018 and Friday 16th February 2018. (Primary schools may use 3 discretionary days to extend this break to an alternative option of a 5 day break for the period from Monday 12th February 2018 to Friday 16th February 2018 inclusive unless changes are required as part of contingency arrangements to make up for time lost due to unforeseen school closures.)

Post-primary schools will close from Monday 12th February 2018 to Friday 16th February 2018 inclusive unless changes are required as part of contingency arrangements to make up for time lost due to unforeseen school closures. Where contingency arrangements are required a school authority may reduce the length of the February mid-term break by remaining open up to and including Wednesday 14th February 2018.
