Growth Mind-set

Carol Dweck is one of the world’s leading researches in the field of motivation. She focuses on why people succeed and how to foster this success in schools. In her research on motivation and achievement, Dweck introduces the idea of Mind-set. Mind-sets are beliefs about yourself and your basic qualities such as your intelligence, your talents and your personality. When we encourage a Growth Mind-set in children then they become enthusiastic learners. A Growth Mind-set means that their intelligence can be developed which has a positive effect on their motivation and subsequently their achievement. Dweck’s research shows that we produce confident learners when we praise children for the process they engage in and not for being bright, clever or talented.  We launched the idea of ‘Growth Mind-Set’ at St Clement’s in September 2016 and are confident in the benefits for our children.
