Hands Off Peacehaven Schools - Our Schools should be accountable to our community


Both Peacehaven Heights and Telscombe Cliffs Schools have had their governing bodies removed and replaced with unelected boards.

This means local people have no say in the running of the schools and we are concerned the needs of Peacehaven children are not being put first.

At Peacehaven Heights the pool has been filled in without consultation.

At both schools an academy trust has been brought in to provide leadership who have not been through any open recruitment process.

We are asking for you to support our campaign to keep our community school accountable to our community and our 4 simple demands:

1 - That a new substantive head teacher be recruited through interviews at Peacehaven Heights as soon as possible.

2 - That parent’s forums be set up at both schools so parent voices are heard.

3 - That for both schools the process of setting up a new, normal governing bodies accountable to the community begin immediately.

4 - That no irreversible decisions, such as academy conversion, be taken by imposed governors.

Please use this simple tool to send a letter to the following decision makers at East Sussex County Council to let them asking them to support the above demands, it only takes 2 minutes!

Cllr Keith Glazier - Leader East Sussex County Council,

Cllr Bob Standley - Lead Member for Education East Sussex County Council,

Cllr Nigel Enever - County Councillor for Peacehaven,

Cllr Andy Smith - County Councillor for Telscombe.

Thank you for your support.
