Advertised Vacancy Number: IPS/TCH650171
Kelmscott Primary School (PS) is seeking to establish a pool of Primary Teachers for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2021 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements up to the end of Term 2, 2021.
Kelmscott PS is one of the first schools to be established in the Perth Metropolitan Area and has a strong history and connection with the local community. Much pride is taken from this history and it is recognised as an important factor in the establishment and maintenance of traditions and values that guide our relationships with all stakeholders. The school is located south east of Perth, approximately 24 kilometres from the city centre at the foot of the Darling Escarpment. The school currently has approximately 300 students with a variety of backgrounds including Indigenous, language backgrounds other than English, and students with additional learning and behaviour needs.
As a teacher at Kelmscott PS, you will become an integral part of our community partnerships to support each child to reach their potential. As such you will demonstrate outstanding interpersonal and communication skills, which underpin professional and positive working relationships with students, staff, parents and the wider community. Applicants will work collaboratively to contribute to a positive culture of systematic and whole school curriculum delivery.
Suitable applicants will be committed to putting students first in their decision-making and undertake the hard work that is inherent in building and embedding whole school approach to delivering motivating and quality educational programs. The school believes that exemplary, evidence-based teaching practices lead to successful students and improved standards of achievement. The implementation of whole school guided reading instruction, STEM integration through the curriculum, Synthetic Phonics programs and Positive Behaviour Management skills is highly desirable.
We are seeking teachers who have high expectations and truly believe that all children can learn and be successful. Suitable applicants will also ideally understand learning support processes, and the ability to work collaboratively with allied professionals to improve capacity and cater for students with a range of needs. To be successful in this role, you will ideally demonstrate proven experience in working collaboratively with all stake holders, focused on school wide programs and processes and effectively demonstrate how you support and cater for all students’ learning in the classroom so that they are successful.
