KiVa antibullying program in Saint Philip’s British School
During November 2016 our staff participated in the learning process to implement KiVa antibullying program. This process will be developed in the next moths with new learning actions. We also carried out some initial learning courses addressed to our students in the mornings and to their parents in the afternoons.
In this way, Saint Philip’s British School was the first school in Jaén’s province and the third one in Andalusia in implementing KiVa program. KiVa is the most contrasted antibullying program of the world. It was developed by the University of Turku in Finland and, nowadays, 90% Finish school use this system.
It is necessary to highlight two aspects:
• On one hand, the University of Turku always appears as one of the best universities of the world in the rankings.
• On the other hand, the Finish educational system appears as the system with the best results in PISA 2015 report.
The main aim of introducing this program is to foster a respectful, warm and comfortable environment in our school and to prevent bullying.
