Havelockinfjnr 2794At Havelock Schools, we know that pupils who have a positive attitude towards their learning will make good progress and be successful. Consequently, instilling all our pupils with 'growth mindsets' has been a key priority for the schools since September 2016. We have introduced the theories of Dr Carol Dweck to staff and pupils and are determined to embed its ideas within our school ethos. The schools use Learning Warriors as a method of discussing qualities that we want our children to display when undertaking their learning journeys.

We want all our pupils to relish challenges, embrace their mistakes as part of the learning process, value the importance of effort, respond carefully to feedback and take inspiration from others. The self reflect on their learning and recognise when they have entered the 'Learning Pit' and how they have overcome this barrier.

This will help them to achieve, not only with us, but also in their future lives as adults.

We are very excited about the prospect of nurturing a growth mindset culture at Havelock Schools.

Please see the Growth Mindset presentation in the sidebar.
