Position Information 

Jordan Springs Public School was established on July 20 2020. The school is located in Western Sydney in a new housing estate known as Jordan Springs. The opening of the school was greatly anticipated and with the completion of Stage One, the school currently has an enrolment of 720. Currently, we have 5% of our student population identifying as Aboriginal and 62% of our population where the students have a language background other than English. 

The school has 27 learning spaces and has three support classes for students living with a disability. The school incorporates an innovative and future focused educational model, including open and flexible teaching and learning areas alongside modern specialist teaching spaces. Boasting device access of 1:2, our students engage in a green learning platform with minimal impact on our environment and maximum impact on future focused pedagogies and practices.  

As the school community evolves, the creation of leadership, sporting and creative arts programs will develop to reflect the students and the teachers working together in harmony. We are closely aligned with our neighbouring schools and networks which support our inclusion within the wider Cambridge Park network of schools. 

Specific Selection Criteria 

1. Approval to teach Special Education and/or experience teaching students with Autism, Mild Intellectual Disabilities, Mental Health needs, Behaviour difficulties and Emotional Disturbances.
