At Huntington School, we recognise that pupils who have a positive attitude towards their learning will make progress and succeed. Therefore, encoraging all our pupils with 'growth mindsets' has become a key priority for the school.
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. This will help them to achieve, not only with us, but also in their future lives as adults.
We know that in order to enable our children to become confident and resilient learners we, as a team of parents and staff, can model the mindset of a learner who is not afraid of making mistakes, but knowing that this is all part of the learning process. The way in which we encourage children to learn and explore is vital to their success, not only at school but at home as well.
We teach Growth Mindset lessons as part of our PSHE curriculum, but also embed the values across all lessons to encourage a positive outlook towards learning.
*We learn from our mistakes
*We embrace new challenges
*We know our brains are growing and making new connections all of the time
*We learn from each other and are happy when others succeed
