Role

Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices.  Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction.  Assistance is readily available when problems arise.  An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.

Location Profile

The two campuses are four kilometres apart and Sydenham is within the Brimbank Local Government area and Hillside is located within the Melton Local Government area.

We are a dual campus school that works as one community striving to develop resilient, kind and inclusive students who value their education. We aim to empower all students to follow their life passions and become successful life-long learners.

Our whole school values of Learning, Responsibility, Respect and Safety guide all of our work. Through a commitment to our values we are able to create a safe and inclusive environment enabling all students to flourish as individuals.

In the classroom our teaching staff provide a comprehensive curriculum with a strong focus on the key building blocks of Literacy and Numeracy. Our teachers work diligently in year level Professional Learning Communities and use data to understand the point of need for each student and then develop plans to target that point of need. Outside of the classroom we provide many extra-curricular activities that support the development of the whole child and also bring the community together which is something that we value very much.

A key feature of the Sydenham-Hillside Primary School Community are the positive relationships between the school and our families which are based on clear and open communication processes. We encourage families to be involved in their child’s education and provide many opportunities for this to take place including but not limited to family information sessions, parent-teacher-student interviews and volunteering possibilities.

We look forward to developing a strong and effective partnership with families that strengthens each child’s learning capabilities.

Open communication is one of our aims and we have established an excellent reputation across the wider community for our inclusive communication practices.

Sydenham-Hillside Primary School has a great deal to offer, with a strong focus on Literacy, Numeracy, and ICT. We also work to create supportive learning environments that cater for the differing needs of all students.

Sydenham-Hillside Primary School’s strategic plan has a series of goals and targets embedded into the document that provides a very clear outline of our intentions to create a place of excellence, where learning is for all, and students are encouraged to succeed and achieve their best.
