Seaford Primary School is a friendly, caring school that values community and aims to achieve excellence, nurture individuality, understand and challenge every child.

We value Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Acceptance.

Seaford Primary School is located in the original part of Seaford and sits in close proximity to the Seaford/Edithvale Wetlands, Kananook Creek and the Seaford Foreshore.  The school was established in 1914 and our current enrolment is 154, drawing on students from the school neighbourhood area and beyond it.

Under the umbrella of the school’s motto ‘From Reality We Gain Understanding’ the school believes in a child centred approach to learning.  With supportive specialist programs including Physical Education, The Arts and Indonesian, a comprehensive, diverse and differentiated curriculum is provided through the Victorian Curriculum using explicit teaching and inquiry learning.  

The school provides for the development of Literacy and Numeracy with attention to emotional, social and physical development.

We provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities including keyboard and guitar.  Linking Education And Play (LEAP) is a unique F – 6 program and a Developmental Outdoor Education Program (camps) is run from F to Year 6.

We encourage the development of positive self esteem, and the ability to work as a team.

Our Social Competencies program focuses on creating leaders and giving students a voice. The Leader In Me program (based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) is being embedded in all subject areas, and demonstrated and taught daily and is supported Restorative Practices and The Resilience Project.

The school offers a daily healthy eating breakfast program and a morning and afternoon Out of Hours School Care run by Elysium.

Exemplary programs are offered for students with a language disorder, or a learning or physical disability. Where students have severe expressive and or receptive language disorders we offer enrolment in a Special Assistance Unit – Language.

The school also runs an aided program for students with disabilities, all of whom have aides who support them in classroom programs and in the development of social skills in the playground.

Additional Assistance Programs support students in years 1 -6 in their literacy learning.

Children are consistently encouraged to see their own worth, and their learning potential and achievement is maximised by their understanding of their own individuality.

Seaford Primary School is fully committed to keeping children safe and has a zero tolerance for child abuse.

Role
[Attendance requirement for this position]

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.
