Rosmini Community School have recently partnered with Jigsaw and are taking part in their One Good School initiative.
“Jigsaw’s One Good School™ is a comprehensive initiative which supports the mental health and well being of young people, and those around them, by developing a shared responsibility for mental health across the whole school community.
In the past ten years or more, there has been a growing level of attention on the importance of promoting and supporting mental health and wellbeing in schools. The government has published a number of key national policy documents which identify schools as critical settings for contributing to student health and wellbeing.
Jigsaw believes that, now more than ever, there is an unparalleled opportunity for us to embrace mental health and wellbeing in schools and to be pioneers of a national movement that will support healthier communities for generations to come. In Jigsaw, we believe that schools play a vital role in promoting and supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people and all those within the school community. Schools can provide safe and supportive environments for building life-skills, resilience and a strong sense of connectedness. Fostering healthy relationships among peers, school staff and parents is critical to a young person’s overall experience of school and their social, emotional and cognitive development. The wellbeing of teachers, school leadership and school staff must also be considered and supported. Through the One Good School™ initiative, we in Jigsaw have a unique opportunity to demonstrate our contribution to the implementation of national government policy for schools and, through our specific mental health expertise, we can actively support and promote mental health and wellbeing and work with schools to achieve their commitments set out in national policy”.
