Location Profile

Wyndham Vale Primary School

The learning and teaching style at WVPS focuses on a differentiated approach for all, and the provision of learning experiences which cater for individual students within each class group. The curriculum, whilst integrated, and with support from a range of specialist teachers, has a strong focus on the excellent teaching of literacy and numeracy with programs that help to ensure each child is at potential.

The design of the school includes a mix of shared common areas and acoustically isolated spaces where students will engage with their homeroom teacher. Children move between general learning zones and more purposeful rooms as they engage in a variety of learning activities.

Specialist spaces and subjects include- but are not limited to - physical education, performing and visual arts, science and Auslan and students have access to our developing library. The school has a strong focus on ICT. Current enrolment sits at 1050 but this is expected to continue to increase slightly over the next few years.

Wyndham Vale Primary School places its learners at the centre of all it does and prides itself on providing an atmosphere where safety, consultative decision making, caring attitudes and high educational standards are encouraged. Students are provided with a wide range of practical and academic experiences to help them achieve personal growth. The school caters for the educational and personal needs of each learner by providing an environment that inspires learning, provides individualized learning approaches, promotes positive relationships, security, a sense of belonging and a culture of respect and pride. Student input into decision-making is actively encouraged.

To better support students at the school, Wyndham Vale Primary School will continue to establish partnerships which enhance the learning and wellbeing needs of both students, and their families. Partnerships will involve external service providers and community organizations, kindergartens, other local schools, and tertiary institutions. The school is building strong links with the community.

The classroom teacher engages in critical reflection and inquiry in order to improve knowledge and skills to effectively engage students and improve their learning.

As the classroom teacher gains experience his or her contribution to the school program beyond the classroom increases. All classroom teachers may be required to undertake other duties in addition to their rostered teaching duties provided the responsibility is appropriate to the salary range, qualifications, training and experience of the teacher.

Classroom teacher Range 2

Range 2 classroom teachers play a significant role in assisting the school to improve student performance and educational outcomes determined by the school strategic plan and state-wide priorities and contributing to the development and implementation of school policies and priorities.

A critical component of this work will focus on increasing the knowledge base of staff within their school about student learning and high quality instruction to assist their school to define quality teacher practice.

Classroom teacher Range 1

These teachers teach a range of students/classes and are accountable for the effective delivery of their programs. Range 1 classroom teachers are skilled teachers who operate under general direction within clear guidelines following established work practices and documented priorities and may have responsibility for the supervision and training of one or more student teachers.

At range 1, teachers participate in the development of school policies and programs and assist in the implementation of school priorities.

The focus of a range 1 classroom teacher is on classroom management, subject content and teaching practice. New entrants to the teaching profession in their initial teaching years receive structured support, mentoring and guidance from teachers at higher levels.

Under guidance, new entrants to the teaching profession will plan and teach student groups in one or more subjects and are expected to participate in induction programs and other professional learning activities that are designed to ensure the integration of curriculum, assessment and pedagogy across the school.
