Jigsaw Programmes are education programmes working towards the prevention of exploitative relationships of young people.
There are three strands to Jigsaw :
Creative courses, workshops and training programmes.
Our range of accredited education programmes are delivered throughout Norfolk in schools, youth groups and care homes, ensuring we work to prevent child sexual exploitation and ensure young people recognise and understand how to stay safe.
Can be used to support and enhance aspects of the Relationship Sex Education (RSE) guidance. All programmes are tailored to the age range the content is being delivered to and are therefore suitable for both primary and secondary schools and colleges.

As an organisation, we are committed to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults and we take all possible steps to safeguard our clients and to ensure that the adults in our organisation are safe to work with our clients.
The Magdalene Group uses the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) to help assess the suitability of applicants for positions of trust.
We follow Government guidance from ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ revised January 2021 and under the Visitors Section, point 200, we do not provide DBS certificates or details of them to schools. We appreciate safeguarding is an important matter and therefore have outlined the robust measures we have in place to address this issue.
These include :
Safer Recruitment policy, including Warner interviews for all front-facing roles.
DBS checks at the appropriate level including barred checks, if relevant.
Right to work checks are carried out.
Ongoing training around safeguarding and key issues.
Monthly line management including case support.
Monthly external supervision.
Monthly case audits with learning identified and implemented.
Rigorous overview of Safeguarding policies and procedures by senior management.
Strategic oversight of the Safeguarding Quality Improvement Plan.
The Magdalene Group complies fully with the DBS Code of Practice regarding the correct handling, use, storage, retention and disposal of certificates & certificate information.
We also fully comply with the obligations under the Data Protection Act 2018 and other relevant legislation pertaining to the safe handling, use, storage, retention and disposal of certificates and certificate information and have a written policy, which is available, on request, to those who wish to see it.
“The Jigsaw programme is always amazing. It tackles issues surrounding teenage life, from relationships, sexting and consent. Often there are subjects at school that teachers may find difficult to discuss such as sexual health, however the Jigsaw programme will come into school and tackle those conversations head on.”
