As part of our School Development Plan, one of our priorities is to focus on a whole school approach to developing a 'can do' culture for learning across all groups within our school.
Our Pupils Explain Growth Mindsets!
What is a Growth Mindset?
It is the opposite of a fixed mindset! A fixed mindset limits what we are prepared to try and often how much we can achieve. If we have a fixed mindset it is easy yo restrict ourselves to areas of our life in which we know we can succeed rather than these ourselves and learn new skills. A growth mindset is "the belief that with practice, perseverance and effort, people have limitless potential to learn and grow", Dr C Dweck.
