1986 Birdham C.E. Primary School

 The Birdham Church of England         
 (Controlled) Primary School is set    
 well back from the road about 300     
 metres from the old school. It was    
 opened in 1964 with two classrooms, a 
 hall, which had to be used as a       
 classroom, and a kitchen. Since then  
 an extra classroom was added to the   
 East end and a staffroom and office to
 the West end. Until l982 the hall was 
 almost continuously used as a class   
 teaching area. However in that year   
 the Parent Teacher Association paid   
 for and built a wooden classroom on   
 the North boundary of the school. The 
 School has about 100 pupils on roll.  
 The staff consists of a               
 headteacher,three full time teachers, 
 one part time teacher, a secretary, a 
 welfare assistant, three staff in the 
 kitchen and two cleaners.
