One Good School - Jigsaw


‘One Good School’

Jigsaw’s ‘One Good School’ is a comprehensive initiative which supports the mental health and wellbeing of young people by developing a shared responsibility for mental health across the whole school community.

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.

This initiative provides a broad range of evidence-informed activities for all those within the whole school community, including school leadership teams, teachers, parents and students. The initiative will be delivered through interactive workshops, online tools and resources, peer education programmes and more.

Implementation of Jigsaw's One Good School initiative supports schools in meeting the expectations of a multi-component and whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing which have been outlined in national policies. The evaluation process involved as part of the initiative can usefully contribute to the School Self-Evaluation process (SSE). This is particularly valuable in view of the target which has been set by the Department of Education and Skills that all schools will have 'an embedded self-evaluation wellbeing promotion process by 2023.'

Luttrellstown Community College was fortunate to be one of six schools in Dublin 15 to be selected to partake in this initiative at the pilot stage. Before commencing One Good School, we surveyed a number of people from our target audiences; School Leadership Team, Staff, Students and Parents. Using the results along with consultation with Jigsaw, we came up with an Action Plan that best suited the needs of our school. The aim was to complete six areas throughout the academic year. At the end of each academic year the Action Plan is reviewed, by carrying out further surveys. With the data collected from the surveys, we can better plan for the following year.
