Teacher job summary

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to teach in the Bexhill area? If the answer to this questions is yes – then King Offa is the school for you!

We are delighted to be able to offer you the chance to apply for this exciting role. We are a two-form entry school with a purpose built Nursery and Early Years building which welcomes children aged two and over. The main school is over one hundred years old and we are very proud of the history and heritage of King Offa. Whilst enjoying the charm and character of such a well-established school, we also always aim to be looking forwards and preparing our children for life in the twenty first century.


We have developed our curriculum significantly in recent years and there is great potential to do even more. We use the Read, Write Inc. phonics (RWI) program right from a child’s first term in reception. We believe that children’s growth as a reader is key to helping them fully access learning into KS2 and beyond. With this in mind our ambitious aim is for all children to have completed the RWI program in year 2.

We build on this strong start to reading by working in partnership with Hackney Learning Trust to deliver Daily Supported Reader for all pupils in KS1 and Destination Reader in KS2 as we believe it is vital that our children are instilled with a passion for reading and a strong desire to read for pleasure.


King Offa is a school that can offer exceptional professional development opportunities, high levels of support and the chance to make a real difference to pupils’ outcomes. We work closely with other schools in our Trust and there are several opportunities to share ideas and learn from each other.


We are seeking to appoint an energetic, innovative teacher to join our friendly and forward-thinking team.

As part of our employment package our staff have access to the Aurora Advantage scheme which provides many benefits including an On Demand GP, access to wellbeing services, high street discounts and a Cycle to Work scheme.


We would recommend a visit to the school where you will receive a very warm welcome. To arrange a visit, please email kingoffaoffice@auroraacademies.org.

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.
