Academic teacher wall planner with key dates for August 2021 to July 2022

There are so many key dates and awareness days in the school year, it can be difficult to remember everything whilst keeping on top of the day-to-day tasks that inevitably take over once the school term has started. That’s why we’ve done the hard work for you and created the ultimate teacher calendar full of key festival dates and the best awareness days, weeks and months to make your lesson and assembly planning a whole lot easier.

The planner follows the full academic year and is quick and easy to download and print for your wall or keep on file to refer to as you plan each term’s activities.

For a handy reference, scroll down for key dates in the school year 2021/22 to put in your diary straight away.



If you are a teacher in Wales, we’ve created a version just for you too! It includes some special dates in the Welsh calendar and the months and days are in the Welsh language, making it something you can put on the wall with pride.
