Whole School Programme

A Growth Mindset culture will maximise your opportunity to nurture the potential of every child in your school.

The Growth Mindset Programme equips school leaders with the tools and strategies to embed growth mindset into the culture of the school. The Programme enables each child and also, importantly, staff members to understand the growth mindset and to change attitudes and behaviours accordingly. Explicitly teaching growth mindset to children ensures a more successful learning journey and develops a passion for challenges, encourages perseverance, resilience, and an understanding of the need for effort and mistake making in learning.
