Eaglehawk North Primary School is a government primary school located on the western fringe of the regional city of Bendigo. The school has strong connections to the local Eaglehawk community and engages in a number of local community events and interacts with a number of community organisations.
Eaglehawk North's vision is:
As every learner moves through Eaglehawk North Primary School, they do so with: mutual respect, a mindset of success and a sense of social responsibility.
The values our school community embraces are respect for self, respect for others, respect for learning and respect for the school environment. These values form the cornerstone of the way we interact and work with one another in our community.
The schools current Strategic Plan runs from 2018-2022. The four themes, creating a coherent curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum, promoting authentic literacy and numeracy teaching and learning, delivering soundly structured instruction and developing self-regulated and resilient learners through the development of student voice and agency and implementing School-wide Positive Behaviour Support are guiding our work over the four years of this plan.
In 2021, the Eaglehawk North had a student population of 332 students. 3 of our students speak another language at home, and 19 students identify as indigenous. 117 students attracted Equity Funding.
This population of students was divided into four teaching and learning teams across the school and included a Foundation team, divided into 2 classrooms, a Year 1-2 team of four classrooms, a Year3-4 team of five classrooms and a year 5-6 team of five classrooms.
Specialist subjects in Art, Chinese Mandarin, Music and Physical Education were offered to all students.
Eaglehawk North's Student Family Occupation and Education Index is 0.4718.
SC1 Demonstrated experience and skills in coordinating a specific education support function.
SC2 Demonstrated capacity to supervise the work of other support staff and to develop procedures and guidelines relating to the work area.
SC3 Demonstrated high level oral and written communication skills.
SC4 Possess the technical knowledge and expertise relevant to the position.

SC6 Demonstrated commitment to professional learning and growth for both self and others.
Performs and/or supervises tasks that are carried out in accordance with guidelines, accepted practice and school policy. This may include the supervision and coordination of other education support class staff within the work area or educational program.
Supervision and coordination would be limited to ensuring routine tasks are performed to required standards. Input into identifying training needs and development of education support class staff within the work area or educational program becomes an important feature at range 2.
Specialised support to achieve specific outcomes is a feature of range 2. Typically this will involve accountability for a single function, (e.g. ensuring data is properly maintained) or the operation of a work area (e.g. managing the day to day operation of a school office) under the direction of the principal or another senior manager.
Provides support to teachers and students that is beyond the routine support provided at education support class Level 1, range 1.
Within an educational program assists teachers with the coordination of the support function, such as directing/organising the work of other support staff or providing a specialist support role.
Undertakes medical intervention support tasks or other specialised student/teacher support roles that require specific training that must be updated from time to time.
The role is for a specific purpose for which there will be direct accountability as opposed to support roles that are carried out by a range of staff performing routine tasks under direction.
Performs technical tasks that require a sound knowledge of basic technical and/or scientific principles that are used to develop and adapt work methods and make judgements where there are clear guidelines and limited options. Routine technical support in libraries, science and information technology laboratories would be typical examples.
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.
