The classroom teacher classification comprises two salary ranges- range 1 and range 2.  The primary focus of the classroom teacher is on the planning, preparation and teaching of programs to achieve specific student outcomes.  The classroom teacher engages in critical reflection and inquiry in order to improve knowledge and skills to effectively engage students and improve their learning. 

As the classroom teacher gains experience his or her contribution to the school program beyond the classroom increases. All classroom teachers may be required to undertake other duties in addition to their rostered teaching duties provided the responsibility is appropriate to the salary range, qualifications, training and experience of the teacher.

Classroom teacher Range 2
Range 2 classroom teachers play a significant role in assisting the school to improve student performance and educational outcomes determined by the school strategic plan and state-wide priorities and contributing to the development and implementation of school policies and priorities.

A critical component of this work will focus on increasing the knowledge base of staff within their school about student learning and high quality instruction to assist their school to define quality teacher practice.

Range 2 classroom teachers will be expected to:
- Have the content knowledge and pedagogical practice to meet the diverse needs of all students
- Model exemplary classroom practice and mentor/coach other teachers in the school to engage in critical reflection of their practice and to support staff to expand their capacity
- Provide expert advice about the content, processes and strategies that will shape individual and school professional learning
- Supervise and train one or more student teachers
- Assist staff to use student data to inform teaching approaches that enable targets related to improving student learning outcomes to be achieved.

Classroom teacher Range 1
The primary focus of the range 1 classroom teacher is on further developing skills and competencies to become an effective classroom practitioner with structured support and guidance from teachers at higher levels and the planning, preparation and teaching of programs to achieve specific student outcomes. These teachers teach a range of students/classes and are accountable for the effective delivery of their programs.  Range 1 classroom teachers are skilled teachers who operate under general direction within clear guidelines following established work practices and documented priorities and may have responsibility for the supervision and training of one or more student teachers.

At range 1, teachers participate in the development of school policies and programs and assist in the implementation of school priorities. 
The focus of a range 1 classroom teacher is on classroom management, subject content and teaching practice.  New entrants to the teaching profession in their initial teaching years receive structured support, mentoring and guidance from teachers at higher levels.

Under guidance, new entrants to the teaching profession will plan and teach student groups in one or more subjects and are expected to participate in induction programs and other professional learning activities that are designed to ensure the integration of curriculum, assessment and pedagogy across the school.

Teachers at range 1 are responsible for teaching their own classes and may also assist and participate in policy development, project teams and the organisation of co-curricula activities.


The role of classroom teacher may include but is not limited to:

  • Direct teaching of groups of students and individual students;
  • Contributing to the development, implementation and evaluation of a curriculum area or other curriculum program within the school;
  • Undertaking other classroom teaching related and organisational duties as determined by the School Principal;
  • Participating in activities such as parent/teacher meetings; staff meetings; camps and excursions;

Location Profile

Our motto is Innovate, Engage, Excel and our aim is to engage our community through valuing Respect, Responsibility and Kindness.

The school prides itself on its culture of learning with staff working in cooperative Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) and engaging in weekly professional learning opportunities.

A strong focus on individualised student learning is at the core of our work with each student setting goals in Literacy, Numeracy and personal growth, a feature.

We believe that students have the greatest chance of reaching their potential if there is collaboration between students, staff and families.  This cooperative approach is what makes our school an active and vibrant "learning community".  We want our families to be partners in learning and we promote this through Student Led Conferences, open days, family events, assemblies, formal and informal meetings, student support groups and regular learning opportunities being provided for families in classroom support, child development and networking. 

An active School Council and a Parents' and Friends Association are integral to the success of the school.

Our School Vision:
We are a safe and inclusive school where all students are curious, engaged and challenged to always do their best. Together we nurture positive relationships, student voice and a lifelong love of learning


School Values

Values are shared beliefs about how we work together. They influence our choices and provide a framework to guide our intentions, actions and decisions in the workplace and in the communities in which we operate. The following three core values we believe will lay the foundation for our future success.

• Respect - Treat everyone with equal consideration. Be accepting of others and their differences.

• Responsibility - Be accountable for your actions. Contribute positively to the school and wider community.

• Kindness - The quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Being kind often requires courage and strength.


School Focus

Student Achievement: If teachers and students have high expectations and practice excellence is built through feedback, coaching and learning in collaborative teams, student learning growth and outcomes will improve.

Student Engagement: If students have an authentic voice in their own learning, and school processes and practices encourage them to plan their own pathways, then learning confidence and high aspirations for their futures will be built.

Student Wellbeing: If preventative programs and social and emotional learning is integrated in learning, together with wellbeing support for students and families, health and wellbeing will be fostered.

 Our key focus areas will continue to revolve around excellence in teaching and learning and the implementation of curiosity and powerful learning through a strong authentic student voice, agency and leadership.

 To support our Vision Statement and Values we promote a curriculum that provides a positive and cooperative learning environment in where students are supported to achieve their potential.

The curriculum is planned and delivered based on the Victorian Curriculum by teams of teachers using an integrated framework incorporating all key learning areas. At all levels, a variety of teaching and learning strategies are in place to develop effective literacy and numeracy skills.

Further to the student centred focus of the school, we have a strong and established student leadership program through House Captains, SHINE Captains, School Captains, Life Skill Captains and a Student Representative Council made up of students in Years 3-6.  Students have increased opportunities to have voice and agency over their own learning.

The school has an extensive information and communication technology network with computers, laptops and mobile digital devices deployed across the school. We have a BYOD program from Years 3-6.

Grounds development has been a priority for the school community, and includes the addition of sensory stations, a cubby, an immersed library, and the participation in a wide range of environmental projects.

To complement the curriculum areas, many enrichment programs are provided including: Bicycle Education, Lunchtime Activities, Interschool Sport, House Sport, Camping/Excursions and Life Education.

The school actively promotes the health and well-being of the total school community, exemplified by our whole school SHINE program, Fitness program, Buddies, Healthy Relationships, Personal Development, Anti- Bullying, Sun Smart, Staff Health and Well-being, Health and Human Relations and Out of School Hours Care.

We were recently the recipient of the 2022 Victorian Education Excellence Award Outstanding Inclusive Education as we have a truly embedded inclusive framework catering for the needs of the large population of students with additional needs at the school.
