It is the nature of the work in schools that tasks and responsibilities are in many circumstances, unpredictable and varied. All staff are therefore expected to work in a flexible, co-operative way particularly when the occasion arises that tasks which are not specifically covered in their job description have to be undertaken. Those additional duties will normally be to cover unforeseen circumstances or changes in work. If the additional responsibility or task becomes a regular or frequent part of the member of staff’s job in will be included on the job description in consultation with the member of staff.
