Growth Mindset is the concept that intelligence can grow. It emphasises the importance of positive learning attitudes including resilience, perseverance and problem solving.
Research by Developmental Psychologist Dr Carol Dweck of Stanford University points to people having one of, or a combination of, two mindsets: Growth and Fixed. A child's belief about intelligence is an important factor in whether they become an effective learner.
The school's project aims to embed the ethos that struggle and failure are an essential part of learning. Children are encouraged to embrace challenge and look for ways to push themselves beyond their comfort zone in a supportive environment.
