Building a Growth Mindset!


What Is Growth Mindset?


The term ‘growth mindset’ refers to a way of thinking, learning and taking on challenges. A person with a growth mindset is open to constructive criticism, takes feedback and uses it, takes on new challenges, pushes themselves outside of their comfort zone and shows resilience and perseverance.

Studies show that it is people with a growth mindset (as opposed to a fixed mindset) who achieve in life, are successful in all they do and are happy. Of course, this is exactly what we want for all our children.



Growth Mindset At TRELAI !


Key aspects of growth mindset:

  • We celebrate making mistakes – we can learn from them;
  • We never give up – perseverance is the key if we are to succeed;
  • We learn from each other;
  • We don’t compare ourselves with others;
  • We challenge ourselves and take risks;
  • We remember that our brains are making new connections and growing all the time.

Growth Mindset in KS2

In KS2 we continue to build our Learning Powers and we become like our Learning Heroes. All of the children and teachers in Key stage 2 worked together to create 3 different Heroes that symbolise or school vision, values and learning powers . These heroes are:

  • Hardworking Harri 
  • Responsible Rhian 
  • Respectful Rhys 

The children worked with an artist to design the Heroes and all had chance to vote for the Heroes names. If you visit the KS2 corridor you can see the painting of our Learning Heroes.
