Location Profile

Overview
Kororoit Creek Primary School is a Public-Private Partnership schools in Victoria which continues to grow rapidly from its foundation population of 260 students in 2011 to a population of almost 1400 in 2021. The YMCA and Kingswim complete the community hub and support the school with the provision of an Out of Hours School Care program, camping program from Years 3-6 and the equivalent of private swimming lessons for all students from Prep-Year 6.

Curriculum
Kororoit Creek Primary School is a fully authorized World School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). The school curriculum is underpinned by the Victorian Curriculum and delivered through the PYP which provides a rich and rigorous inquiry model of learning. The curriculum contextualizes student learning as well as understanding and transfer of practice, whilst building the knowledge, skills and attributes of individual students and staff as learners of the 21st Century. We continually strive to ensure high levels of literacy and numeracy which are taught explicitly as well as through the interdisciplinary nature of the inquiry process. KCPS supports strong community values which underpin the safe and orderly learning environment which contribute directly to the school’s positive standing and high reputation within the immediate and broader area. All staff at the school are provided with accredited IBO professional learning and take part in the school’s coaching program which is supported by both internal coaches and external consultants.

Role
Mon - Fri: 8:45am – 3:15pm

Registered Nurse (Div.1) qualifications required.

Range 3 is distinguished by the introduction of management responsibility and accountability for the delivery of professional support services. The role will usually impact beyond the work area or professional field. It seeks to gain cooperation of other staff members or members of the school community to achieve specific objectives, such as in school administration, operations or educational programs.

Direction on targets and goals is provided but the position will have some degree of latitude in determining how they are achieved. This latitude will generally be limited by standard procedures and school policy. Deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

The provision of business management responsibilities becomes a feature at range 3. Management of staff to achieve the expected outcomes is a key responsibility. Staff management issues will be resolved with minimal reference to senior management, although guidance will be required in more complex cases. Senior management will be provided with timely reports and advice, although this will generally be confined to matters relating to the immediate work area, service provision or educational program and is unlikely to impact substantially on whole of school operations.

This is the minimum range for positions that carry a mandatory qualification requirement of not less than four years. Professional student support positions become a feature at range 3 (e.g. therapists, psychologists) where standard professional services are delivered. Professional support and guidance will be close at hand and deviation from standard procedures and school policy will require guidance and direction from senior management.

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.

Responsibilities

  1. Provide medical support for students with illnesses or injuries sustained during the school day on the school site
  2. Attend school camps/excursions as required to support staff and students
  3. Establish and maintain individual action plans for students with medical conditions such as anaphylaxis and asthma
  4. Liaise with parents and outside agencies with regard to individual student health plans as requested
  5. Maintain key records in the delivery of first aid and administration of medications for students
  6. Liaise with staff regarding student health and action plans
  7. Provide support and information to staff, students and parents re health matters
  8. Other duties as directed by the school business manager or principal
