Jigsaw Extended Education Support Service
“Supporting emotional development and achievement”



Working to help vulnerable young people reconnect with

             their learning by helping them to feel safe enough to access

             their education.


The Jigsaw Service provides support by:

  • Providing Outreach support for primary aged pupils in schools to prevent exclusion;


  • Providing statutory 'In -reach' education and support for those primary aged pupils who are permanently excluded;​


  • Providing Nurture & Assessment Places (NAP) for Primary aged pupils who are an existing outreach referral. Referrals to Jigsaw In reach should be made to the Primary Vulnerable Learners Panel and supported by the Outreach team;


  • Providing personalised reintegration packages to assist pupils in their return to school;​


  • Providing family support for referred children who are identified as having difficulties.


The Jigsaw Team are committed to, and passionate about

children and their inclusion in education. With this in mind, we feel that the children we support must be at the heart of what we do.

In order to enable our children to achieve success, we believe that they must be treated as individuals and that a holistic approach should be employed in order to meet their needs - this in turn should provide the best chance for them to reach their full potential enabling them to feel happy, safe, valued and inspired.

We believe that it is not for adults to judge the children or to be critical of them but to be positive and committed to providing a fresh start and a way forward for them. It is agreed that, in order for this to happen, we must develop positive and supportive partnerships and work closely with a range of stakeholders so that the children we support can blossom and experience success in all areas of their school life and beyond.
