As a school, we embrace everyone having a Growth Mindset. We support our children to learn that no individual has limits and that they can succeed if they want to. We recognise effort as a key part of learning. In our classes we use the language of, ‘If you can’t do something, you can’t do it yet‘. We support our children to be resilient and show endurance in their learning.
When do we use our growth mindset? ALWAYS! But here are some examples:
When we work as a team
When we learn a new skill
When we are learning with a buddy
When we are acting
When we are discussing
When we learn a new language
When we are helping others
When we are exploring
When we have a growth mindset, it changes how we talk about challenge, our work and learning. If we have a fixed mindset we are reluctant to take risks, put the effort in or be resilient when we face challenge. Here are some of our famous quotes and language we use in class.
