Growth Mind Set
At Sturry CE Primary School we have a growth mind set culture.
We enjoy challenges.
We know that if we get stuck we can find a Plan B and keep on trying.
When someone else gets the answer right we know we can learn from them.
We know we can learn from mistakes.
Our approach to growth mind set is based on the research of Carol Dweck (2000) which recognises that a child’s approach to learning can enable them to fulfil their potential and set them on the path to a love of life-long learning. There are two types of mind set – fixed and growth. A fixed mind set limits potential where as a growth mind set supports growth and development.
