Does Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE work?
The Sheffield Hallam University Report
After 2 years of exceptionally positive feedback from schools using Jigsaw as their chosen PSHE programme, we were very eager to see if the outcomes could be measured in an objective way. The Sheffield Hallam Centre for Education and Inclusion Research was commissioned to conduct an impact study with over 100 Jigsaw schools during the academic year 2015-2016.
Under the excellent leadership of researchers Clare Wostenholme, Ben Willis and Martin Culliney, and grateful to the 101 schools, 195 teachers and over 812 children who took part in the study, the work was done and we are delighted to share the Executive Summary showing the findings.
