Growth Mindset

As part of our School Development Plan, one of our priorities is to focus on a whole school approach to developing a 'can do' culture for learning across all groups within our school.

Our Pupils Explain Growth Mindsets!

What is a Growth Mindset?

It is the opposite of a fixed mindset! A fixed mindset limits what we are prepared to try and often how much we can achieve. If we have a fixed mindset it is easy yo restrict ourselves to areas of our life in which we know we can succeed rather than these ourselves and learn new skills. A growth mindset is "the belief that with practice, perseverance and effort, people have limitless potential to learn and grow", Dr C Dweck.

Welcome to PAT!

This character helps the children at Barnabas Oley to consider Growth Mindset ideas.

Each term we introduce a couple of the speech bubbles as the statements for the term.
We have identified the order in which we are sharing them with the children above each speech bubble.
We hope you will be able to share these ideas with your children as they use them in school. Please feel free to ask for more details, your class teacher or Miss Jarvis will be happy to talk through any points.
