At Karratha Primary School (PS) we value diversity and academic excellence. We are positive and inclusive. We embrace the values of care, personal best, responsibility and respect to nurture independent lifelong learners and active citizens.
We are seeking teachers to work on the KPS team towards this vision. Our focus is developing academic excellence in all students within a school that fosters a sense of belonging and strong community. Karratha PS’s highly effective classroom teachers have strong interpersonal and collaborative skills to cater for the needs of a diverse range of students including students with disability. An understanding of effective teaching of Aboriginal students will also be highly regarded. If you are committed to following explicit, whole school approaches in curriculum, instructional practice, behaviour and wellbeing, then you may be the right teacher for our school.
Teachers at Karratha PS are lifelong learners who are supported in a consultative, collaborative culture through whole school approaches to teaching and learning, instructional coaching, structured ongoing professional dialogue and opportunities to develop and lead. They are part of an active network of schools, with access to a variety of high quality professional learning and collegial support.
Karratha PS is an Independent Public School with specialist inclusion facilities, proud of its tradition of meeting the educational needs of Karratha students since 1971. Our comprehensive learning programs are developed to ensure all students have an ongoing opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to achieve their academic potential. Our Positive Behaviour Support approach and the Be You framework enable us to consider the needs of our students in the priority areas of academic excellence, belonging and lifelong learning.
