Why we have chosen Jigsaw?

We have chosen to use Jigsaw at the Newark Hill Academy after a number of good practice visits from other school many members of the teaching team have visited.  The curriculum sequencing, progression and resources are ideal for our staff members to ensure it is taught with clarity and rigour.

A small number of family members have raised concerns or asked questions with regards to what is being taught and Jigsaw has a wealth of documents written for family members which will ensure their queries are answered fully.
