Growth Mindset

 

We are a Growth Mindset school, and employ this scientifically proven tool to enhance our children's successful learning. 

 

What is Growth Mindset?

Growth Mindset. ... According to Dweck, “In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort.”

 

Students with a growth mindset believe that ability can change as a result of effort, perseverance, and practice. You might hear them say, “Maths is hard, but if I keep trying, I can get better at it.”

 

Research links the growth mindset with many benefits, including: greater comfort with taking personal risks and striving for more stretching goals; higher motivation; enhanced brain development across wider ranges of tasks; lower stress, anxiety and depression; better work relationships; and higher performance levels

 

We have held workshops for parents to empower them to support our children.
