A positive school climate - bullying prevention

Our school accompanies and supports all students to become positive individuals who are capable of solving conflicts reasonably and peacefully and to responsibly care for themselves, interact with others and deal with the environment. Together we create a healthy school environment where every child can feel safe.

Bullying as a social phenomenon also occurs among children and young people, but not every interpersonal conflict is equal to bullying. We take the prevention of bullying in our school very seriously. It is a known fact that bullying can have a strong negative influence on the personality development of all parties concerned - both the victim and the perpetrator - and may sometimes lead to mental disorders. Bullying does not only weaken individuals, but also the class community and even affect the quality of the school climate.

As a means of prevention, the European School Munich has developed a clear and effective approach to bullying and, has introduced a comprehensive prevention programme - the KiVa programme - initially only in the Primary School in 2015 and since the school year 2018/19 also in Secondary School.

If you as parents of a child in the Secondary School have any questions regarding bullying or fear that your child might be affected, you may confidently approach the educational advisor in charge or directly contact the anti-bullying team (school psychologist and social worker).
