FREE 45 minute briefing on anti-bullying in primary schools
You are warmly invited to a FREE 45 minute briefing, held at the Belgrave St. Bartholomew’s Academy:
- on Wednesday 29 March
- at 3:45pm– 4:30pm
This briefing follows-on from the anti-bullying training workshop that Jane Henry facilitated on behalf of BTSA in January. The content of this short briefing will explain the KiVa process to enable schools to effectively prevent and tackle bullying.
You do not need to have attended the first session to attend this briefing.
The main purpose of the briefing is to inform schools of a bullying prevention / mental health promotion programme that has been developed at the University of Turku (Finland) and is now available to schools in the UK. KiVa is an evidence based programme which means it has been subjected to rigorous evaluation and proven to have significant positive impact, compared to control groups.
KiVa goes beyond bullying……. it covers a significant part of the non-statutory PSHE framework, develops social responsibility, addresses cyber-bullying and helps children develop healthy relationships.
Jane Henry, Accredited by the CEBEI as one of only five KiVa Trainers in the UK and via her Social Enterprise, Proof Matters Ltd, will be delivering the briefing to schools across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.
The estimated levels of bullying in any school in the UK is estimated to be at 15%. How many children does that equate to in your school? Bullying can have a long term impact on their mental health and educational attainment, so this is a very important and sensitive topic.
Please come along to this free briefing and learn more about what KiVa is, how it is implemented and understand the research base behind it which has shown significant improvements for children’s safety, mental health and improved social responsibilities.
If your school is able to attend this briefing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
