Growth Mindset

At Hollymount School, we know that children who have a positive attitude towards their learning will make good progress and become more resilient.

We want all our children to relish challenges, embrace their mistakes, 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.

We develop growth mindset by having a different focus each term.

Autumn 1 = Power of Yet

Autumn 2 = Messy Success

Spring = Magic Mistakes

Summer = Train your Brain

Each week, we recognise and celebrate a child’s growth mindset by awarding a certificate and a prize.

At Hollymount, we also have ‘Growth Mindset Mentors’ who meet every term to talk about ideas on how to help other children’s growth mindset. They also decide on a ‘celebrity of the month’ (someone who has demonstrated overcoming challenges or mistakes)
