About The Extra Time Project
The Russell Martin Foundation has launched a new education initiative across secondary schools in Brighton & Hove. The new alternative provision, ‘The Extra Time Project’, has been backed by Brighton & Hove City Council, Eight Brighton & Hove secondary schools, Sussex Police Community Safety Fund and a locals favourite restaurant – Donatello.
The Project is aimed at KS3 pupils, years 7,8 & 9 and is a used as a respite for pupils that are finding themselves falling into negative routines in their daily school lives. Whilst spending their time at the provision, the pupils will continue with their main core subjects, English, Maths, Science and have bonus top up lessons in Life Skills, Art and leadership. As well as this, the pupils will be engaging in an enterprise project and a sports leadership project, leading to organising and delivering a sports tournament to primary school pupils across the city. The curriculum is built to build pupils character profiles and develop self-esteem, confidence and understandings to why they can get frustrated and agitated, and then learn how to deal with the issue at hand. This is also helped through a range of guest and motivational speakers including Russell himself.
