Note: Adding on, individual schools in Northern Ireland can also take a number of staff training and school development days throughout the school year. On these certain days, pupils do not have to attend school. Because these extra days off are at the discretion of every school, the dates are likely to be different from school to school- thus it is best keep tabs for any school communication concerning upcoming training or development days at your child’s school.
