The checklist sets out how frequently you may want to carry out clerical and administrative tasks, and is based on our experts' recommendations.

Tailor it to your school's specific needs and processes. Bear in mind that it's not exhaustive; the kinds of administrative tasks carried out in schools will vary, as will the person responsible for them and how often they are carried out. 

Adapt the checklist to:

  • Alter the frequency of the tasks
  • Change what's included
  • Add your own tasks
  • Input a deadline for the task, who the owner is, and its status
