The Social Research Unit at Dartington is implementing and evaluating the KiVa Anti-bullying programme for primary schools in Wales, in partnership with the Centre for Evidence Based Early Intervention at Bangor University and the Children’s Early Intervention Trust, and with support from the programme developer, Professor Christina Salmivalli.

The project, funded by the Big Lottery Innovation Fund for Wales, runs from March 2013 to July 2015. It will benefit approximately 2,000 pupils aged 7-11 years who will receive the programme in its entirety. It will also benefit an additional 1,000 pupils aged 5-6 in participating schools who will be exposed to the whole-school element and KiVa team.
