When are the Easter holidays 2019?
This year Good Friday falls on April 19 and Easter Monday is on April 22.
Because Easter is late this year, in most areas kids will be off for the two weeks before for the Easter break
That means they break up on Friday, April 5, and go back on Easter Tuesday, April 23 – which is also St George’s Day in England.
With the weekends and the bank holiday, that stretches to 17 days.
Other schools might take the two weeks either side of Easter so the two bank holidays fall within the Easter holidays.
Dates vary in different areas so you should check your school, council’s website or the Government’s postcode checker.
