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.
The project 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 still 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.
