Whether you have children yourself or you're simply wanting to avoid the crowds during school holidays, here are all the dates you need to know for Easter 2018
The half term start date varies from school to school.
Some schools started the new year on January 3, while others didn't return until Monday, Jan 8 - for exact dates check your council website.
Your kids will either be off between February 12 and 16, or from February 19 to 23.
The spring term will continue on the next Monday, and continue through to the Easter holidays.
What date is Easter 2018?
Easter Sunday comes fairly early this year, with the big day taking place on April 1.
Because of this, most schools break up just days before the main event - on either Thursday March 29 or Friday March 30.
As Easter Friday falls on March 30, your kids might not be off when the Easter period commences.
