ELLERN MEDE SCHOOLS TERM DATES 2021/2022
Ellern Mede Schools in London have term dates that quite closely follow the London Borough of Barnet. Ellern Mede Moorgate School in South Yorkshire quite closely follows the school calendar for the South Yorkshire Borough of Barnsley.
for all Ellern Mede Schools, there are 190 school academic days per year with 5 Inset days (staff training days).
All our schools returned to in-classroom learning in by March 2021.
Our schools continued to safely teach pupils throughout Covid-19 restrictions. We have done this through the use of online learning which was, and still is in some cases, well received by pupils. Even during lockdowns, two to three teachers were always on site at any time to support Ellern Mede Hospital patients where required. For example, some may have needed safely socially distanced face to face support. These teachers also supported other colleagues with the online teaching. The 2021 Summer term came to a close on 21st July.
Our next school year for pupil attendance commences for all Ellern Mede Schools on Friday 3rd September.
As far as dealing with COVID-19 is concerned, with most staff vaccinated and stringent infection control still in place, we do everything we can to prevent cases in our schools. Our staff are tested for COVID twice a week and staff all have their temperature tested daily on arrival for teaching. We continue to follow Government guidelines as these remain dynamic.
