Chirnside Park Primary School (CPPS) is a growing school of around 360 students with a SFOE index of 0.38. In 2021 there are 13 EAL enrolments, 6 Aboriginal Students and 8 students identified to receive students with disability funding.

The school is a friendly, welcoming and inclusive school with a keen focus on the FISO priorities of Student Well Being, Engagement and Achievement.

Our high academic results are testament to the fact that we promote a ‘whole school’ evidence- based approach to teaching and learning with a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. We have developed a specific ‘Chirnside Park Instructional Model’ for the way we approach teaching and learning across all grades.

Staff at Chirnside Park PS know that Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) has a significant impact on a student’s ability to engage with the curriculum and learn effectively.

There is an agreed whole school approach to student management and well-being. The cornerstone of our wellbeing program is our commitment to the development of Social and Emotional Learning for students through the explicit teaching of the ‘Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships (RRRR) program’ and the ‘Zones of Regulation’. The RRRR and Zones of Regulation runs across all year levels and is designed to promote positive social and emotional skills.

As a school we are committed to the FISO priority of Connected Schools. A strong sense of community exists and the mutually supportive partnerships between students, parents and staff are a key feature of the school.

Our values of Excellence, Commitment and Compassion are at the core of our learning, teaching and well-being programs and a strong culture of care and support exists within the school.

Chirnside Park PS is located 40km east of the Melbourne CBD in an urban development close to a rural environment and has extensive views of the Yarra Valley and the ranges beyond.

[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.


  • Assist in the exchange of information between the community and the school.
  • Assist with the liaison and communication between parents, teachers, other staff and members of the wider school community.
