Growth Mindset

This half term we will be introducing all children in school to the idea of developing a growth mindset. This will be launched with a series of lessons, assemblies and challenges in school which will be reinforced with “learning keys” in all classes. These will focus on the important characteristics of learning including things such as concentrating, persevering, questioning, applying skills and having a go even if you get it wrong all of which fit together and contribute towards developing a growth mindset. The idea of developing a growth mindset can have many lifelong and educational benefits.

Although no one likes failing, children with a growth mindset do not let failure define them; instead, they use setbacks to motivate them. Children encouraged to adopt a growth mindset enjoy challenges and the sense of achievement they get when they succeed.

The exciting thing about the growth mindset approach is that it is not just about ability. It focuses on what people believe about ability – and there are lots of ways that parents, families and school can help our children to develop a growth mindset.  

Growth Mindset encourages children to be resilient and not give up, even when they find something difficult or frustrating.

We hope that the children will really enjoy learning about how to develop a growth mindset and will be able to talk and share some of the activities which they have been taking part in with their families at home.
