How do I prep peeling composite decking for repaint?

After exhaustively googling I'm at a loss on how to repair my deck. We inherited the deck from a previous owner and it has textured paint over the top of what seems to be composite decking without the typical wood grain. I've only ever refinished/stained natural wood deck and all I seem to find online is instructions on restaining/repainting for cosmetic purposes.

How do I prep the peeling parts so that the refinished paint will stick without damaging the "wood" underneath. I don't have the budget currently for a full re-deck. I'm thinking wire brush and a bit of sanding around the edges of the peeling part and just repainting over the rest after cleaning.
