Growth Mindset

This half term staff and pupils have been further exploring growth mindset; incorporating the language of growth mindset into our school day.

We have learnt how to change a fixed mindset view of a mistake into a growth mindset learning opportunity as well as recognise that with most achievements, we may experience some setbacks on the way.

“A growth mindset is when you can’t do something and you say ‘I can’t do this yet!’ The ‘yet’ means that you will keep trying and one day be able to achieve your goal.” 

Alba - Cedar

Here are some examples of growth mindset phrases used by staff and pupils:

“If at first you don’t succeed…try, try and try again.”

Bill - Lowry 

“When Plan A doesn’t work, remember there are 25 more letters of the alphabet.”

Seraphina - Kandinsky
