Growth Mindset

We want to create a ‘risk-free’ learning environment 

  • where students are willing to

          * Learn

          * Risk making mistakes

          * Push themselves

          * Take on challenge

  •  where teachers communicate confidence in all students’ ability to rise to the learning challenge
  • where students are able to effectively self-assess their own learning and effort.


How can we enact a growth mindset culture in our school? 

  • Ensure all stakeholders – staff, students, governors and parents – have the approach clearly explained
  • Change the language of feedback
  • Use growth mindset praise
  • Use formative comments only for assessments
  • Encourage children to feel confident to make mistakes

Please take a look at our presentation for parents.
