Growth Mindset

Ability is a consequence of what happens in our classrooms not a cause!

We believe inherited traits are only one part of the story of where we may end up. The environment created in our classrooms, the culture of hard work and determination that we encourage, the recognition that we are all able to increase our knowledge through learning, we believe, has an equally valid impact on our future success.

We seek to effect the environment to which the children are exposed to maximise pupils’ opportunity to learn!

Growth Mindset Theory at St. Peter’s

At St. Peter’s the teaching staff have
wholeheartedly embraced the concept of a growth mindset.
We recognise that many of our children are classified as disadvantaged, but furthermore we recognise that this does need to impact on their cognitive abilities.
As children walk through the school entrance doors and step in to St. Peter’s they are asked to imagine themselves taking daily steps down Progress Avenue.
