How pupils use Growth Mindset in their learning

16th Mar 2017

As a Growth Mindset school, we actively encourage challenge, resilience and effort in all of our pupils. We believe that everyone’s abilities and talents can be developed through dedication and hard work. We aim to create a love of learning coupled with a culture of resilience in the face of challenge and difficulties. In practice, this means that our pupils are urged to view mistakes as an important part of the learning process, not as failure.

The results below are from our Pupil Survey 2017 and are a testament to our teaching practices and Growth Mindset culture.

  • 98% of pupils like having problems to solve
  • 97% of pupils agree that when given new work, they feel confident they can do it

Watch a short video of pupils providing examples of how they have used a Growth Mindset in their learning.
