The Year of the Growth Mindset

YOGM reminders

Building on our previous work with the children in developing positive learning behaviours through resilience, this year we are focussing on Growth Mindsets – where children understand that their intelligence is not something that is fixed and cannot be changed, rather it can grow as they use it.

A child’s mindset, or personal view of their own intelligence, affects their motivation to learn and their aspiration to achieve. We are aiming for each child to develop a Growth Mindset where they love learning, they value effort and they persist in the face of obstacles.

Our school motto for The Year of Growth Mindset is:

All of us can achieve great things with

  • effort;
  • motivation;
  • perseverance; and
  • support.
