Moe (South Street) Primary School has an enrolment of 284 students (13 grades) and is located within the township of Moe, in Gippsland. The school is an active member of the Latrobe Valley network in the Gippsland Region.

Our Mission is for Students, Teachers and Parents to develop a strong partnership that displays mutual respect and trust to provide a stimulating learning environment that meets the academic, social and emotional needs of all students.

Our Vision is:

At South Street Primary School we grow people who:

  • Are creative, curious and independent learners.
  • Are resilient and problem solve when faced with challenges.
  • Respect and care about themselves, each other and the world in which we live.

Our Values are:

  • Be Safe
  • Be a Learner
  • Be Respectful.

Our school framework is based on School Wide Positive Behaviours. It is known as Positive Behaviours for Learning (PB4L) at South St Primary School. This has made a significant impact on the climate of the classrooms and the school.

In conjunction with PB4L we use the Zones of Regulation and Respectful Relationships.

We adopt Professional Learning Communities (PLC) where teachers work collaboratively, focus on student learning and a focus of results. Staff members are committed to becoming a PLC and answering the four critical questions in all their work:

1. What do we want students to learn?

2. How do we know if they have learnt it?

3. What to do if they don’t learn?

4. What will we do if they already know it?

To complement this, we build independent learners through our work on Growth Mindsets (Carol Dweck).

South Street lies within an area that is characterised by high unemployment and generational poverty. The school has a Student Family Occupation (SFO) of 0.67 which reflects a low socio economic status. Despite these challenging factors, we have a range of intervention and support programs to provide all students with an education that meets their needs.

We are also very fortunate to have a full time Primary Welfare Officer who works closely with children and families. We place a high priority on the well-being of our students, their engagement and connectedness to school.

we also have a School Community Nurse (3 days per week) and a Chaplain (2 Days per week) to support students and Families.

Strong leadership, teamwork and respect are key features of the school. Our motto ‘Parents, Teachers and Children working Together’ underpins our philosophy and is reflected in our programs and practices.

The school prides itself on building good relationships with its community and engaging students with a variety of academic and social programs. Specialist programs include Language Support, Visual Arts, Diti Tech, Music, Physical Education and Music. We have an integration Aide in each of our classroom to support student learning.

Classrooms also have access to laptop computers. We have a sustainability program and an outdoor classroom where students can work in gardens and care for animals.

Role

[Attendance requirement for this position]

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.

Who May Apply

Individuals with the aptitude, experience and/or qualifications to fulfill the specific requirements of the position.
