Keep on top of your tasks for the summer term with our downloadable checklist.

Summer term task checklist

Use our checklist to keep track of key dates for summer term and tasks related to:

  • Health and safety
  • Finance
  • Teaching, learning and assessment
  • School improvement, evaluation and monitoring
  • Governance
  • Administration

We developed this list with the help of our associate experts Trevor Bailey, Marilyn Nathan, Jeremy Bird and Jenny Moss.

Planning ahead?

Use our checklists for autumn term and spring term tasks (they'll be updated for the next academic year in due course, but in the meantime will still give you a good sense of what will need doing and when).
