Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2021 school year, up to the end of Term 4, 2022.

We are seeking accomplished teachers with outstanding interpersonal and communication skills which underpin professional and positive working relationships with students, staff, parents and the wider community.

Suitable applicants will become an integral part of our community to support each child to reach their potential.

As a teacher at Warnbro PS, you will be working in a collaborative environment to improve student outcomes, reflect on your own performance, contribute to staff development and support our distributed leadership model.

You should be committed to continuous improvement by your willingness to accept and implement change, brainstorm innovative solutions and contribute to initiatives at a phase of learning and/or school-wide level.

Suitable applicants should be highly skilled and motivated educators who are passionate about teaching, with an excellent knowledge of the Western Australian Curriculum, especially in Literacy and Numeracy.

The school is focused on embedding evidence-based practices with a strong focus on explicit teaching in Literacy and Numeracy and social emotional support.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is a school-wide focus, with yearly projects linked to community events and themes such as sustainability.

Applicants who can exhibit their high quality teaching skills and how they impact student achievement across academic and social domains are encouraged to apply.

Our school vision, “Strive for Success” is supported by our mission to Inspire Minds, Create Wisdom, Connect People and Build Community. We value learning that is explicit and holistic, encompassing the social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative dimensions of learning for all children.

Vacancies may arise during the life of this pool that require specialist qualifications (for example vacancies within Early Childhood Education).

Only applicants, in the pool, possessing the required qualifications will be considered for appointment in these circumstances.

To be suitable for this role, you will need to demonstrate your competency against the following domains (that govern the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers):

  • Professional knowledge;

Applications will be assessed against these domains. The business needs of the school may also be considered.

It is therefore recommended that you consider all information contained in the advertisement and any other related information before applying for the vacancy.
