Welcome to Jigsaws!

This is a class for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Communication and Interaction Difficulties. We provide a more suitable learning environment with a higher ratio of adults to children. Some of the children will transition back into their mainstream class, over time and with support. All children have the opportunity to go out on educational visits with their peers.

The staff who work with the children in Jigsaws are:

  • Emma (Teacher)
  • Danielle
  • Lin
  • Jamal

In Jigsaws the children have the opportunity to thrive both academically and in all other areas of development through the delivery of personalised curriculums. We also have support from outside professionals such as a Speech and Language Therapist, Educational Psychologist, Occupational Therapist and Communication and Autism Team.
