  • Celebrating and promoting Growth Mindset through our classroom displays and stories.

  • Using feedback and praise designed to promote and highlight Growth Mindset.

  • Showing pupils that their brain and body can physically achieve more through training and effort.

  • In assemblies and PSHCE lessons giving clear and inspirational examples of others who have used their Growth Mindset to great effect.

  • Providing opportunities for pupils to think and write about their mindset through peer and self assessment and reflection time.
