AT MSPS we administer, collate and analyse student data to inform teaching and learning as well as Intervention programs. We use High Impact Teaching Strategies including setting goals, structured lessons, explicit teaching, collaborative learning, multiple exposures with an ongoing focus on differentiated teaching supported by an external consultant.

The school offers a range of well-resourced specialist subjects including French, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics), Visual Arts, ICT (Information Communication Technology) and Physical Education.

Together we create motivated, respectful learners who achieve excellence.

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.
