Do you have the drive and desire to take on new challenges and help us to achieve our vision?

Pine View Primary School is seeking to establish a pool of K – 6 teachers for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2022 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2022 school year.

Pine View Primary School (PS) in Baldivis is seeking highly motivated, flexible and collaborative teaching staff to join our growing team. The school opened with students from K- Year 6 in 2021. An Education Support Centre will open in 2022 and will operate as part of Pine View PS.

Suitable applicants will support and continue to build the school’s culture, vision, values and future directions. The ideal qualities that you will bring to the role will be collaboration, flexibility and the ability to adapt to ongoing change as the school grows. You should exhibit exemplary interpersonal and communication skills, which will underpin positive, professional working relationships with staff, students, parents and the wider community. You will ideally possess the ability and confidence to communicate regularly and honestly with parents. A positive cultural is central to everything we do and this is underpinned by high expectations of student learning and behaviour. Suitable applicants will be generous with their time to continue the establishment a highly regarded school.

Suitable applicants will focus on the development of the whole child. Our aim, in partnership with families, is to create unique, lifelong learners who are resilient and confident to tackle challenges of an academic and personal nature. All school staff supports each individual child to thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Our common goal is to have the students in our mainstream and education support programs at the centre of everything we do and every decision we make. We will provide a unified approach to student well being, where all staff will take shared responsibility to ensure that our students are well cared for and valued. Our education support students will be integrated into mainstream classes where appropriate.

Our pastoral care program, based on Six Kinds of Best, will include values and skills including confidence building, resiliency, citizenship, goal setting and leadership. Accepting children for who they are and building on their strengths will be a focus. A collaborative approach will ensure that intervention is targeted and individualised to enable each child to reach his / her full potential.

Well-researched, evidential practices will inform whole school approaches to teaching and learning to ensure that every child acquires the core literacy and numeracy skills as well as the knowledge and attitudes that are required to become lifelong learners. Suitable applicants will ideally have expertise and experience in explicit teaching and intentional play. It is highly regarded that applicants are able to implement and progress whole school approaches to teaching and learning and bring innovation to collaborative planning and lesson design. An embedded application of First Steps English and Maths, ICT and a knowledge and understanding of the Talk4Writing process and Letters and Sounds program would be highly desirable. We will work together to deliver innovation in the area of STEAM programs. The ability to enhance student connection to learning through an integrated and differentiated approach to learning would be beneficial. Teachers within the Early Childhood Education phase of learning will promote the principles of the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards. Programs will include planned, purposeful play balanced with the explicit teaching of the essential foundation skills and concepts.

Suitable applicants will ideally be committed to reflective practice that will include classroom observations, feedback, modelling and coaching. You will assist the development and implementation of school wide practices to meet the needs of our students and ensure an environment that promotes success is created. Teachers will be expected to contribute to whole school and phase of learning teams and be involved in a strong professional learning community.
