Jigsaw is a truly exceptional and inspirational special school for children with complex mental health needs. Its excellence stretches far beyond the ‘outstanding’ accolade awarded by Ofsted. Having experienced other special schools with my child, I can confidently say that Jigsaw is in a league of its own when it comes to excellence in teaching and care of each individual pupil. I know my child is safe, stimulated, motivated and learning to the best of their ability at school. I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind that gives me as a parent every school day, but thank you again from the bottom of my heart.” (Parent Survey 2016)
