Introduction to Growth Mindset

At St Mary’s we have given a great deal of thought and time into looking at how children best learn and develop the skills they need not only for school but in preparation for their lives ahead.

At St Mary’s we have given a great deal of thought and time into looking at how children best learn and develop the skills they need not only for school but in preparation for their lives ahead. An integral part of this has been adopting a growth mindset approach to all they do. This means children learn that putting in effort, showing resilience when things go wrong, learning from failures and trying different strategies is an integral part of their learning. The following pdf files provides you with a flavour of the why the approach was adopted and the consequences of it. I hope that you find it helpful.
