Elliminyt Primary School is a highly inclusive, nurturing learning community that fosters life-long learning through motivated, responsible students who are engaged and involved in their learning environment.  

We educate and nurture the ‘whole child’; developing academic, social and emotional competencies as part of the learning experience, supported by our core school values of Honesty, Respect, Personal Best and Responsibility.

English and Mathematics constitute the core of our curriculum program, as they are the building blocks on which other curriculum studies are built. All children will progress at different speeds, but the important thing is that they all work and learn to the best of their ability and feel appropriately challenged and successful in their learning.

Teaching and learning programs are delivered through the flexible grouping of students that allows learning to take place at the appropriate level for each and every individual. Stimulating programs in areas such as The Arts, Physical Education, Science and Indonesian enrich the daily lives of all pupils.

Parents play a significant role in their child’s development as part of the Elliminyt Primary School community. When students enter our school in Prep (or any other level) we join with their parents in supporting their child through 7 years of education both academically as well as socially and emotionally.

We are very fortunate to have an active, hard working Parents and Friends Association that enrich the experiences and opportunities we can provide for our students, working alongside our dynamic School Council.

We have high expectations for our entire school community in everything we do. We expect our students to be well behaved, be proud of their appearance and uniform and to be well mannered.

Our approach to positive behaviour is proactive and centres on self-discipline, self-esteem, responsibility and reflective processes. With everyone working together our students enjoy learning and playing in a secure and safe environment.

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.
