Becoming a KiVa school

KiVa is not meant to be a one-year project, but a permanent part of the school’s ethos, culture and anti-bullying work.

Kiva is a research based bullying prevention and intervention tool for schools.


KiVa schools follow a specific procedure in prevention and intervention.  KiVa means…

  • antibullying lessons for targeted grades, fun activities for students, learning by doing, concentrating in group formation
  • engaging the whole school in antibullying work, raising awareness on bullying and its consequences
  • informing students, parents and the whole school community
  • clear intervention model when bullying emerges
  • training for personnel
  • annual surveys to keep track of the school’s situation and results
