Jigsaw is a truly exceptional and inspirational special school… 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)
