Role

30 hours per week.  Mon - Fri 9.00am - 3.30pm.

Undertakes routine tasks that are usually carried out under close supervision and direction.  Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established and direction is readily available.

Work has little scope for deviation. 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.

Does not carry responsibility for the work of others.  More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor.  Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Qualification requirements do not operate at range 1.  Certification requirements may be required to legally perform specific tasks - e.g. driver's licence, first aid, safe food handling.

Context
In 1987 Alfredton Primary School was relocated from Gillies Street, where it was originally known as Ballarat West Public School, to its current site and facilities. The construction of the new school was a cooperative effort by the Alfredton community and the facilities were enhanced through local contributions to ensure that the school became a central hub for the community. The attractive development and conscientious maintenance of these facilities since their construction has ensured that today's students enjoy an excellent environment, not only for their learning, but also for their active and passive recreational pursuits. The School is now part of the South Western Victoria Region

Alfredton Primary School has a strong record in attracting children living in the area.  School enrolments have shown steady growth to peak at over 600 in 2016. The school is proactive in developing and promoting itself as the preferred school of choice.

With large housing estate expansion in the area the school recognises the need to be proactive in the matter of its future enrolments.

The School is held in high regard within and beyond the community.
The Alfredton school community has the expectation that all children will reach their full academic and personal potential with the school providing appropriate curriculum programs and effective teaching practices.

Whilst the key focus of the school is on Literacy and Numeracy, classroom programs provide a broad curriculum across all key learning areas - the Arts, English, Health, Physical Education, Mathematics, Languages Other Than English, Science, Humanities and Technology.
The classroom programs are supported by a Program for Students with Disabilities, and specialist teachers of Japanese, Physical Education, Visual and Performing Arts and Literacy Support.
 

As well as a comprehensive curriculum, students are offered extra curricula enrichment activities which include sport, performing arts, instrumental music tuition, special days, the annual concert, excursions, incursions and camps. Students enjoy opportunities for leadership and values based education. A number of teams compete in after school competitions, supported by teachers and parents.

Parents are very involved in the development of the school formal associations with School Council, Parents' Club and Community and Engagement. We encourage parents to take an active part in their child's learning through information evenings and the school's open door policy. Many parents actively help in the classroom and their support is encouraged and welcomed.

The use of technology to enhance student learning for all students is a feature of the school. High quality facilities, programs, equipment and expertise are provided to support classroom programs, which cater for full class groups through access to networked devices.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is implemented from year 4 and enhances digital learning and development of ICT skills across key learning areas.


As part of their commitment to the development of a highly effective learning environment, and to take advantage of opportunities to pursue their own professional growth, the staff reflect on ways to improve overall team performance. The staff are focussed on refining, improving, and changing instructional practices to improve student achievement by committing to the implementation of the Professional Learning Team (PLT) inquiry cycle which is based on the 4 strategies of:
1. Focusing on data
2. Sharing and reflecting on classroom practices
3. Applying research and best practices
4. Using teamwork and collaboration skills.
