I would assume so.
If you might be fit again during the summer holidays, it might be worth establishing, before the summer holiday begins, how you go about notifying them of that so that you can return to full pay.
If you could be signed fit for work for the last day of term there would be no problem!
(Likely to result in being signed off again second day back in September)
.......and how many of us have seen this over the years?
I've seen that happen.... and also been asked to represent people who have effectively falsified medical absence.

If the OP did this, however, on resumption of sickness absence her/his recorded absence would resume at the point where it had previously left off - with the result that s/he would quickly go on to half pay. It's no longer possible to return for a few days and then go off sick and get the full sickness pay entitlement.

Yes it is.
The sick pay entitlement applies to each (leave) year, which I understand usually starts 1 April. So if you have exhausted your full sick pay entitlement and run over into April and then return to work, even for 1 day, the clock starts again, your sick pay entitlement is reset, and you return to full sick pay entitlement.
Of course if you remain on sick leave throughout, you do not get a new sick pay entitlement after April. You need to go back to work int he new leave year to reset the clock.
