At Jigsaw we are passionate about improving and sustaining children’s emotional health, emotional literacy and mental health, as we believe these to be absolutely vital to accessing learning, and to better life chances.

Jigsaw is an evidence-based PSHE programme with mindfulness philosophy and practice woven throughout. This session defines emotional and mental health, considers the correlation between this and capacity to learn, and most importantly suggests how schools can work best for children. Philosophy and practice combine in these sessions.
