The Extra Time Project

"To mould and shape a safer future for our pupils' educational journey, with targeted mindsets"

The Extra time project was created in August 2019 in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council, along with 8 secondary schools across the city. Due to early successes of the project, all 10 secondary schools in the city were signed up to the programme at the start of the second educational year, along with West Sussex County Council commissioning a new Extra Time venue in Worthing with 8 partnered secondary schools. At the start of the 2021/22, The Extra Time Project now works across three sites, Brighton & Hove, Worthing & Chichester, welcoming 120 pupils from 24 Secondary schools through our doors each year. Further to this, the project has expanded its provision into now running one day ‘on-site’ provisions for specific secondary schools and a new pilot project working on KS2 transition.

The 12-week Extra Time Project, along with the one day ‘on-site’ provisions is aimed at working with KS3 pupils that are finding mainstream education difficult due to difficulties either resulting from inside or outside of school, that impacts on engagement and wellbeing. The three main aims for any pupil that attends the programme are to increase attendance, curricular progression and SEMH wellbeing. This is carried out through a creative and confidence building curriculum alongside receiving core English, Maths and Science lessons. Pupils are monitored continuously throughout the 12-week placement with Extra Time as well as the first full term back in mainstream education. If you would like to discuss the project, a new one day provision or how the KS2 transition project could work for your school, then please contact Tom Betts – Head Of Alternative Provision -
