In 2022 Aldercourt Primary school celebrates its 51st year. Over the past 2 years the school has undertaken major building works including a new administration building incorporating a welcoming space, community room and 5 consulting rooms.

A Performing Arts room was built as part of the refurbishment of the gymnasium. An Early Learning Centre with 3 and 4 year old kindergarten as well as play group commenced in 2021.

Aldercourt Primary School is one of the three schools which serve the Frankston North community and the Frankston North Education Plan aims to transform opportunities for this community. Working closely together the 3 schools will offer high quality education from birth to adulthood, act as the platform for the delivery of many health and welfare services and open their facilities for extensive community use.

Together they will become the heart of their community. It is an expectation that all staff are genuinely committed to working with young people in the schools and aspire to the vision of the Frankston North Education Plan, that “Every child and family is successful in learning and life’.

Our learning culture is embedded in our school motto “Learning for a Brighter Future’.

Our school values are:

Undertakes routine tasks that are usually carried out under close supervision and direction. Work that carries some degree of independence will generally involve a limited number of tasks performed on a regular basis where priorities are clear, procedures are well established and direction is readily available.

Work has little scope for deviation. Problems can usually be solved by reference to well documented procedures and instructions and clearly established practices. Deviation from established procedures will require reference to others for guidance and direction.

Assistance is readily available when problems arise. An experienced employee at range 1 will exercise limited judgement within clearly defined guidelines and well established practices that relate specifically to the tasks performed.

Does not carry responsibility for the work of others. More experienced employees will provide basic guidance and advice to others relating to tasks within the work area.

An education support class position supports the educational services being provided to students, but must not include duties of teaching as defined in clause 2.6.1 of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic) or its successor.

Supervision of students cannot be required except where it is an integral part of the employee's position or involves supervision of students individually or in small groups, in controlled circumstances, where the responsibility for students remains clearly with a teacher.

Qualification requirements do not operate at range 1. Certification requirements may be required to legally perform specific tasks - e.g. driver's licence, first aid, safe food handling.
