We are proud to be a KiVa school.

KiVa is a research based anti-bullying intervention originating in Finland. It has been based on research on bullying and experiences from earlier intervention programmes used around the world.

In Key Stage 2, the KiVa programme will aim to stop ongoing bullying, prevent new bullying incidents from occurring and reduce the harmful effects of victimisation through changing bystanders’ behaviour towards bullying.

The learning walk in Summer term (13/06/22) involved visiting classrooms to observe KiVa lessons and to discuss the impact of KiVa with staff and children.  Below is a summary of findings based around some of the key questions asked during the learning walk.
