Information about this school
Peacehaven Community School is an average-sized mixed sex school. The headteacher was appointed in November 2015 following the departure of the previous headteacher who had been in post for two years.

The school is actively supported by the local authority and the SWALE Academies Trust. An interim executive board, including representation from the Peacehaven Community Learning Trust and the SWALE Academies Trust, was established in January 2016. The majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds, with smaller numbers of any other White and other mixed backgrounds. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups and the proportion of those who speak English as an additional language are below national averages.

The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding is in line with the national average. This funding is for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and looked after children. Seventeen pupils were eligible for the Year 7 catch-up funding for those who did not attain Level 4 in either English or mathematics at the end of primary school.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability or an education, health and care plan is well above the national average. The Learning Support and Development Faculty includes a special facility for pupils with speech and language and communication difficulties.

Six pupils are educated elsewhere following personalised courses at Seaford Head Academy and the YMCA in Hove. The school did not meet the government's 2015 floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress from key stage 2 to key stage 4.
