    I work in a small rural 3 teacher school with multi composites. Our head teacher is a cluster head and spends 2 and a half days with us and the rest of her time at the other school. She wants the staff to take on more leadership roles next session which we don't think we should have to do. The GtC standards say its not part of our job remit. Can we say no?

    You can say no, but I'd recommend you all have your union support to do so and make it a collective refusal.

    Totally agree Caterpillar. I would add, that having transferred from secondary to Primary, on the whole secondary teachers are much firmer about expecting and getting pay for doing management roles. Primary teachers feel like a bit of a soft touch, being much more open to "do it for the little children" type pressure. Far easier to resist pressure to do it for lary teenagers!

    @springle29 Is she prepared to remunerate you properly for any additional tasks or roles?

    Who is in charge when she is not there?
