Position Information

Toukley Public School is situated on the NSW Central Coast. Our school expectations are that respect, responsibility and excellence are ubiquitous throughout the school and its community. We have an enrolment of 564 students from Preschool to Year 6. The school receives significant equity loadings for socio-economic status (FOEI 140), Aboriginal background and students with disabilities.

Kooloora Preschool is our designated Aboriginal preschool, with 40 places available for a part time program to service Aboriginal families from all areas of the Central Coast. Our school has 148 (26%) Aboriginal students who are well supported through close connections with the Muru Bulbi Aboriginal Education Consultancy Group (AECG) and a designated Aboriginal Education Officer.

Our three class special education unit provides placements for 21 multi-categorical (MC) students who are supported by specialist support staff. A fourth MC class will be established this term.

Toukley has an increasing enrolment of students with an English as an Additional language or Dialect (EAL/D) background which currently sits at 2.4%. Three students qualified for support under the New Arrivals program in 2020.

As an Early Action for Success school, Toukley utilises the expertise of designated instructional leaders to support the teaching of literacy and numeracy in the early years. An additional instructional leader is employed to provide in class, in context professional learning for the primary staff.
