King Offa Primary School

Bexhill on Sea   East Sussex

Prior to 1907 all schools in Bexhill were "Church" schools, in 1903, as a result of the 1902 Education Act, Bexhill formed an Education Committee responsible for Elementary Education in the town. This committee's first task was the building of a school independent from the influence of the Church. (Click here for Bexhill Observer's report)

The new "Down Council" school was built on the site of the old Bexhill Workhouse (known as Workhouse Field) and close to the first drill hall, built in 1901. The school cost a total of £7718 plus £1000 for the land. Many local people thought this was much to expensive for a school.
The first part was opened in March 1907, originally for 200 Junior Girls and 200 Mixed Infants, all in the same building! in fact, on opening, there were 160 children in total. Boys were admitted into the Junior section in 1908, but in separate classes, mixed classes were started later as the school got bigger.
The classrooms were designed to hold 50 children, but there was no furniture other than desks in rows; neither were there any "displays" as found in classrooms today.
Two classrooms, the "Baby's Room" (4W) and one other (6T) had fireplaces, the remainder were heated by hot air from boilers in the cellar.

The first headteacher was Miss Lucy Brizley, with a staff of four other teachers, one trained and one untrained teacher for the Junior Girls section and one trained and one untrained teacher for the Infants section.

Our special needs provision is organised by our SENCO and Deputy Head, Miss Conaway. She works with all the teachers and classroom assistants to provide the necessary support the child will need.

Class teachers keep a constant check on children's progress by the regular use of standardised tests, and organising normative assessments. The progress of each child, in every class, is discussed regularly. If any problems seem to be persisting then, for some children, it may be necessary to seek professional advice from other agencies.  All work with this group is organised with the full involvement of the parents. If the problem is not resolved we use the full services of East Sussex Psychological Service to facilitate our aims.
