Welcome to the Growth Mindset page. We hope this will help you to support positive attitudes towards learning and raising self-esteem in children at home, just as we are doing in school.
What Is Growth Mindset?
The term ‘growth mindset’ refers to a way of thinking, learning and taking on challenges. A person with a growth mindset is open to constructive criticism, takes feedback and uses it, takes on new challenges, pushes themselves outside of their comfort zone and shows resilience and perseverance.
Studies show that it is people with a growth mindset (as opposed to a fixed mindset) who achieve in life, are successful in all they do and are happy. Of course, this is exactly what we want for all our children.
Handouts are availble from the school office. More information is available in our PowerPoint below.
Thank you for your support!
"I was already bought into the idea as you know with my child but I thought the workshop sealed it for me. When I got home she told me she’d got her 2nd sticker for 5 times tables so I high fived her and said well done, I’m very proud of you, that’s because we did all that practise on Tuesday and your hard work has paid off…….her face beamed!!"
"My partner hasn't shut up since we got home and is currently sat looking up positive quotes! Thank you!"
