Children go back to school this week after the long summer break - but what are the term dates for the next year?

The 2021/22 academic year is made up of 194 days at school, with five days being taken for staff training.

The Essex and Suffolk school term dates are pretty similar, apart from the Essex Spring term being one week shorter than Suffolk's.

Parents are encouraged to check the exact dates their child's teachers, as individual schools' dates can vary.

Autumn term 1: Wednesday, September 1 - Friday, October 22 

Autumn half term: Monday, October 25 - Friday, October 29

Autumn, term 2: Monday, November 1 - Friday, December 17
