Darley Primary School is located in Bacchus Marsh approximately 50kms West of Melbourne CBD.

It has a current enrolment of about 600 students.

Darley Primary School prides itself on being a community School that develops strong relationships between students, parents, staff and the wider community.

Our School Community believes that our School should be a vibrant, creative, safe and happy place for families to send their children to.

Our School works hard to develop lifelong learners, tailoring programs that tap into student interests and skills. Students are challenged to develop individual goals that are supported by families and staff.

Current specialist programs offered include Art, HAPE, Music, Chinese and Science. Senior School students also participate in an electives program.

Darley Primary School works hard to develop social competency in our students. School values and behavioural expectations are emphasised to students, parents and staff. Our hierarchy of consequences is also explicitly shared with our school community.

Staff members place a high priority on communication and work with parents to ensure student progress. Individual learning plans can be developed for students who need extra support.

The School looks forward to continuing to meet the challenge of educating our students

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.

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.
