KiVa school! 

We are so proud to be a KiVa school!  Since becoming a pilot school in 2019, Kiva has had such a positive impact on our wonderful school.

It’s an anti-bullying programme that has been developed in the University of Turku, Finland, and stands for ‘against bullying’.

The programme is evidence-based which means that the effectiveness of KiVa has been proven scientifically.  The goals of the Kiva  programme are to:

  • Reduce bullying

  • Prevent new cases from emerging

  • Minimise the negative effects caused by bullying


We use a school-wide definition of bullying.

Bullying is the harmful behaviour/degrading treatment which is - 

  • Deliberate

  • Repeated

  • Targeted at a relatively defenceless or a less powerful person

Our children really enjoy their KiVa lessons in which  they learn how to take responsibility, resist peer pressure and treat others with respect.
