There are a number of policies and guidelines that are in use at Peacehaven Community School.

These were originally created, and have been adapted over the years, to make the process of learning as effective, inclusive and enjoyable as possible. They explain in detail certain elements of school life which may not be fully apparent at first glance. For example, the reasons behind the school's ICT Use Agreement or the arrangements affecting off-site activities.

For more information on PCS policies, please click the links in the downloads section to the left for the complete versions. If the policy you are looking for isn't listed or you require a paper version, or have any comments on our policies then please contact the Headteacher’s PA, Becky Platt - Head PA - becky.platt@swale.at for more information.

Most of these documents are in Adobe PDF format, a free facility available from Adobe Acrobat Reader it helps to maintains the original look and feel of a document.
