Growth Mindset (2)

Using Growth Mindset to Develop Numeracy Skills in Science

Growth Mindset was launched as a whole-school teaching and learning focus at Whalley Range in September 2016. One theory of growth mindset refers to ‘Neuroplasticity’, which is the idea that the brain is malleable and can build new connections through experiences. We used this idea to focus on helping our students develop a specific skill in Science by regularly revisiting this skill.

Hosting a cross Trust training day on Growth Mindset

Inspired to further develop our cross Trust working, in December 2017, supported by a grant from the Regional Schools’s Commissioner to build capacity, we held a training day at Old Trafford bringing together all the teachers and support staff from our three academies, along with staff from our partners, the Manchester United Foundation. It seemed apt that for our first whole Trust training event, the subject in focus was Growth Mindset!
