Growth Mindset

This is fundamental to what we believe here at Carbrooke.

It's very simple - the harder you work, the more resilience that you show, the more successful you will be. You have to ask yourself: do you see getting something wrong as an opportunity to learn and when it happens do you work even harder to improve? If you do, you are showing a growth mindset! If you get something wrong and you give up and think that you'll never be able to do it then you have a fixed mindset and it is likely that you be less successful.

This website explains it very effectively - https://www.mindsetworks.com/science/ and this one talks about how you can use this information to support your child - http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/help-your-child-try-new-things
