The job holder may be required to undertake additional duties as could be reasonably required in exceptional or emergency situations.

The work of schools changes and develops continuously which in turn requires staff to adapt and adjust. Whilst the main duties and responsibilities of the post are set out above, the job description is not an exhaustive list of tasks and each individual task to be undertaken has not been identified. The duties and responsibilities above should not therefore be regarded as immutable but may change. Any major changes will involve discussion and consultation with you.
