At Huyton with Roby, we are really encouraging children, staff and parents to build a growth mindset. We all have beliefs about our own abilities and potential. These beliefs are part of our mindset, which is so powerful. It can fuel our behaviour and predict our success.
A Growth Mindset occurs when we believe our intelligence and abilities can be improved with effort and the right strategies.
A Growth Mindset is believing in the power of yourself and your brain!
Does having a Growth Mindset help?
When applying Growth Mindset in the classroom, various researchers found that it was linked to students:
- Seeking out better feedback and persisting for longer;
- Coping better with transitions and developing better self-regulation;
- Experiencing lower levels of stress and aggression as well as increased well-being and emotional functioning;
- Experiencing improved self-esteem, learning orientation and reduced helplessness;
- Developing grit and pro-social behaviours.
