Yes, it's the same here which I think is great. Last year they were off for ages before Christmas and back on the 2nd January which I thought was outragously early!

no we go back on the 3rd!!

Might depend on whether you break up before or after Easter , as it is so early . We only get a 10 week term, 8th Jan to 20th March, but others are going through until 4th April.

My 2 broke up on the 21st December and go back on the 3rd January - they are both still knackered and could really do with the extra 2 days off.

We go back the Monday after

Beginning of term is 3rd, but they have 3rd and 4th as Inset days, so we get the extra weekend. Thank goodness - not ready yet!!
