At Holmston, we actively teach pupils to develop a ‘Growth Mindset’ based on the work of Professor Carol Dweck. You can support this work at home too.
Practising growth mindset theory with children is a great way to get them engaged with subjects and activities that they try to avoid through fear of getting things wrong or “not being good enough”.
Please click on the pages to find out more about developing a Growth Mindset and why this is important.
