Advertised Vacancy Number: IPS/TCH848407
Quinns Beach Primary School (PS) is seeking to establish a pool for appointments to permanent and fixed term, full-time and part-time vacancies which may arise during the 2024 school year. Appointments can be made from the pool at any time for commencements within the 2024 school year.
We are seeking teaching staff who are passionate about developing life-long learners, who are team orientated, display self-awareness and problem-solving capabilities through self-reflective practices to improve their practice. We are looking for educators that have high expectations and strong relational skills to build positive connections with student, families, and the community.
Educators at Quinns Beach PS work in a professional learning environment with a defined instructional framework and whole school approaches reflective of the Department of Education’s, Teaching for Impact. Suitable applicants will work to further develop and embed our whole school programs and pedagogical approaches such as Literacy and Numeracy Blocks, Synthetic Phonics, Talk For Writing, Zones of Regulation and the Quinns Beach PS Positive Expectation Program. Knowledge and expertise in these programs and pedagogical approaches is highly desirable.
Quinns Beach PS is currently involved in the Centre of Excellence in the Explicit Teaching of Literacy Internship and applicants will ideally possess knowledge and implementation of current educational research and practice in literacy. Teachers will also plan content with an awareness and practical understanding of major learning theories such as Cognitive Load Theory.
Suitable applicants should possess a capacity to plan challenging and engaging programs using an excellent understanding of the Western Australian Curriculum. A focus on catering for individual learning needs through differentiated learning and a tiered approach is a high priority. Suitable applicants that have the ability to utilise trauma informed practice, proactive behaviour strategies and restorative practices that support positive student outcomes are favourable.
Educators at Quinns Beach Primary School aim to build collaborative relationships with Aboriginal students, their families, and their community to improve educational outcomes. Suitable applicants will ideally need to demonstrate a commitment to embedding authentic culturally responsive practices into their teaching and learning programs.
We are seeking educators that can collaboratively plan with their colleagues, assess student learning and teacher impact through assessment and data analysis as well as commit to whole school improvement. Student and staff wellbeing is at the forefront of our business and therefore being team focused and willing to contribute to a positive school culture is important.
