Hi Everyone, Long time reader, first time poster. Mainly due to me being volunteered for the NUT rep post for my small school. Came back to school this week to enjoy the usual training days, but with an unwelcome addition to our timetable. The staff have always had a 1 break duty per week timetable, and the volunteer paid extra duties at lunch time, but we have been informed that each member of teaching staff now have 2 or 3 lots of week-long morning duties (8:00am to 8:20am) that have been introduced to patrol the bus parks as students arrive; much to the surprise of the staff. Yes, we have morning briefing 2 times a week at 8:10, but 3 members of staff have been to see me to say that their child care starts at 8:00am at the earliest, and they cannot make this newly instated "duty". Being new to the role, any advice would be amazing, and I would love any feedback that I can go back to the members of staff with.
