King Offa school has been at the heart of its community for over a hundred years and is a well recognised landmark in Bexhill. The building provides spacious classrooms and an inviting environment for pupils and staff to work together and learn within. Outside we have extensive playground space; an outdoor covered classroom area; a large field and a swimming pool which is used in the Summer term to provide opportunities for every child in the school to learn to swim.

Children at King Offa are provided with high-quality learning. Outstanding provision means that pupils are engaged and demonstrate high levels of motivation, resilience, empathy, enquiry and are happy to take risks.

Our recently redesigned curriculum ensures that our teaching actively engages pupils to deepen and embed key concepts and skills as well as the transfer of knowledge across the curriculum.

We work in partnership with Hackney Learning Trust to deliver Daily Supported Reader and Destination Reader and have invested in Reading Recovery and BRP (Boosting readers @ primary) as an integral part of our approach to reading. In addition, we teach phonics from nursery using the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc programme.

We have adopted a mastery approach to the teaching of mathematics where we follow White Rose Maths schemes of learning to ensure a coherent, consistent approach to maths is adopted in all year groups. Importantly we focus on allowing opportunities for our pupils to explore concrete, pictorial and abstract approaches to maths.

Sussex Music School works closely with our school to build a culture of music from within and provide high quality curriculum music. Our children have the opportunity to learn to play recorder, ukulele and drums within lessons, and private instrumental lessons are also available. Our expert teachers support community events such as Summer sing and Big Sing all held at our local De La Warr pavilion.

We are working with REAL PE to deliver an inclusive PE curriculum which creates habits and develops essential behaviours, physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills in every child.

King Offa Primary Academy & Nursery is part of Aurora Academies Trust. Our seven schools spanning nursery, primary and secondary provision are all judged to be good or better by Ofsted.
