Policies and Guidance
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.

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 - firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Most of these documents are in Adobe PDF format, a free facility available from Adobe Acrobat Reader it helps to maintain the original look and feel of a document.
Fair Processing Notice
Schools, Local Authorities (LAs), the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF), the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), Ofsted, the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) and organisations that require access to data in the Learner Registration Scheme as part of the MIAP (Managing Information Across Partners) Programme all process information on pupils in order to run the education system; and Department of Health (DH) and Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) process information on pupils in order to tackle the year on year rise in obesity among children, and in doing so have to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
This means, among other things, that the data held about pupils must only be used for specific purposes allowed by law. We are therefore writing to tell you about the types of data held, why that data is held, and to whom it may be passed on.
