Location Profile

Toolern Vale & District is situated in a beautiful natural environment, surrounded by a creek, forest, and gentle hills that contain an abundance of native flora and fauna. While the school is classed as metropolitan, it is generally described as a `country¿ school. The township of Toolern Vale is situated 40 kms north-west of Melbourne and located within the City of Melton. 

We are a small school with a current enrolment of 180 students. Given the small school population there is a strong sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst students, families and staff.  A significant proportion of enrolments are requested by families out of our school zone. The school's SFOE index is 0.4773. 

Our school has eight composite classes, and currently offers specialist programs in Health and PE, the Arts, Science and LOTE. The staff structure includes 8 classroom and 1.6 specialist teachers,  .6 tutor, a principal, assistant principal, 8 education support staff, 0.6 psychologist, and .4 welfare teacher. Our admin team is made up of our business manager and part time administration officer. Staff retention is consistently high.

At our school, the instructional model was collaboratively developed with input from staff members and informed by the HITS. We implement the Victorian Teaching and Learning Model through the TVDPS Instructional Model which ensures all learners are active participants in their learning and consistent high-quality teaching is enacted through explicit use of the High Impact Teaching Strategies, with a focus on goal setting, structuring lessons, and explicit teaching.

The school provides staff with professional learning opportunities and individualised coaching related to the instructional model. Staff work in professional learning communities (PLCs) supported by a team leader, to monitor and improve the effectiveness of their instruction.

During 2022-2023, the school has substantially increased the range of wellbeing supports available through a multi-tiered approach. Universal supports have focussed on greater consistency in the school's positive behaviour support model throughout all classes. Targeted and individualised supports have focussed on small group and 1:1 programs with the school¿s wellbeing teacher and school psychologist. The combination of supports has enhanced student engagement and wellbeing and are an ongoing priority for the school.
