Covid-19 Response Statement

Jigsaw’s Covid-19 Response Statement

During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, Jigsaw has remained resolute in its commitment to continue to educate, care and support those learners in our community who need our support most.  We are proud to have been able to keep our doors open throughout, whilst operating adjusted timetables and daily schedules, and recognise that we have been able to do this because of the commitment of our staff teams, suppliers and contractors and also as a result of the support we have received from our extended Jigsaw families.

As an organisation, Jigsaw is governed by a commitment to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our learners and staff at all times and all decisions are made with this at the forefront of our thinking.  Whilst we are in constant and direct contact with our families and carers, we provide here more information regarding our response to Covid-19 and the various preventative measures and proactive actions we have in place across our site to best mitigate risk and to keep our learners and staff safe.

Jigsaw is operating in line with all Government guidance and best practice and has a dynamic, evolving Risk Assessment in place that is reviewed weekly by our Business Continuity Team (BCT*).  This enables us to respond swiftly to any legislation/advisory changes and effectively implement new protocols and interventions where necessary to further ensure the safety of all our learners and staff.

*BCT comprises our CEO, Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Director of Adult Services, Facilities Manager, Head of HR, IT Lead and Marketing & Communications Manager.  

As an ever changing document, we have taken the decision not to publish our Risk Assessment online, however, it is available for review should you wish to request a latest, dated, copy at any point from [email protected].

We have created a number of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that relate to key aspects of the Risk Assessment for  Jigsaw School and/or JigsawPlus Specialist Adult Day Services.  To view the FAQs, click the following links to visit our Covid response page on either  Jigsaw School website or JigsawPlus website.  The FAQs are regularly reviewed and will be updated when and if necessary and in line with our Risk Assessment.
