Advertised Vacancy Number: IPS/DP682849
This is a seven (7) month fixed term, full-time position commencing Term 2, 2021
Roleystone Community College (CC) is seeking an enthusiastic, passionate and experienced or aspirant Deputy Principal to join its leadership team. This is a fixed term appointment, with possible extension.
Roleystone CC is looking for a Deputy Principal that can work collegiately and collaboratively but can also show a level of independence, organisation and initiative in the way they work.
The Deputy Principal Operations position has been created to give the successful applicant experience in leading all areas of operation of a K-10 school. The Deputy Principal will be responsible for the planning and implementation of the following areas of operations within the whole school context:
- Reporting to parents
- External Testing (OLNA, PISA…)
- Timetable construction
- Course selections
- Teacher relief
- School Tours
The Deputy Principal Operations position would be seen as an excellent stepping stone for an aspirant Level 4 Deputy Principal that requires experience in all areas of whole school operations. High quality leaders without experience in all of these areas are encouraged to apply, as there is mentoring available in each of these areas of operation to provide support where required.
This position is a multi-disciplinary position, and although the successful applicant would not have direct responsibility for student behaviour, there would be times when they would need to support the remainder of the leadership team during times of absence, especially in the Secondary School.
Roleystone CC is becoming recognised as one of Western Australia’s outstanding public schools based on the excellence of its teaching and ability to meet the needs of every student. Roleystone builds promising futures for our students through providing excellent breadth and depth of education and a rich range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. Roleystone CC values and fosters community partnerships and sees itself as a community asset.
Central to the students’ experience at Roleystone is a college culture that promotes learning. The school is driven by the deep belief that every student is capable of successful learning and that it is the responsibility of every teacher and leader to ensure that all students progress. Roleystone CC embraces the opportunities and challenges of a rapidly changing world to change lives for the better. Every student at Roleystone CC matters.
As a school, as leaders and as teachers we don’t give up on students – we constantly explore new ways to engage students who are not making progress, or who are making progress at a rate beyond that of their peers. The personal and familial attributes and circumstances relating to a student are not viewed as reasons or excuses for a student’s lack of academic and/or social progress. Instead they are viewed as challenges that need to be overcome.
Students will receive every assistance to overcome obstacles to learning, or to provide opportunities to achieve beyond the levels expected of them. We promote school and classroom environments that are safe, respectful, tolerant and inclusive and promote academic rigour. There will be a strong collegial culture of mutual trust, respect and support among teachers and school leaders, and positive, caring relationships between staff, parents, students and the wider community.
At Roleystone CC, we focus on early identification and early intervention. Educational disadvantage is cumulative and as such, reducing this disadvantage in the early years provides an investment in the future of every child in their early years of schooling to ensure they are not left behind. This has become evident through the development of an early intervention team which includes a psychologist and occupational therapist. This team works closely with teaching staff to ensure that developmental delays for children are identified and relevant intervention is targeted to every child.
Arising out of this vision are four principles that underlie decision-making and the way staff work within the College and need to form the core of every teacher’s belief and practice. It is expected that each staff member will understand and work within these guiding principles. These four principles guide the way we work at Roleystone. The four principles are:
- Presume positive intent.
- No deficit model.
- Role modelling of positive behaviours.
- Every student will progress and this progress is the responsibility of the teacher, leaders and parents in the school.
