As a school we agreed our three core values to be Respect, Friendship and Perseverance.  These values underpin our learning and enjoyment at school. Perseverance is a foundation for our Growth Mindset ethos. Based on the work of Carol Dweck, we believe that challenges help children to grow, and that it is effort and attitude that determine their abilities. 

If children find work easy we make sure they encounter more difficult tasks; fostering a resilience and a love of learning through praising effort over achievement. You may hear our children refer to themselves as ‘Yetis’ – they are not mythical monsters – they are just working on their YET! “I’m not good at maths – YET”, “I don’t understand this – YET”.        

Here are some some recommended materials on Growth Mindset for our parents and carers:-

If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.  – Carol Dweck
