We're all starting to prepare for Christmas and as the wrapping paper flies, it's sometimes easy to forget exactly when the school holidays start and end.

So here's a quick reminder.

Schools following Lancashire County Council's published holidays are due to break-up on Friday 22 December and due to return on Monday January 8.

But as always, parents are advised to also check with their local school as individual holidays may differ slightly.
