Growth Mindset

Growth Mindset

What was school like for you as a child? Perhaps things came easily or perhaps you struggled and no one seemed to understand you. Whatever your personal experience, you can be pretty sure that school for your own children is a very different experience. As teachers working in schools today, we benefit from a huge range of educational research and we know so much more about how children learn best. Yes, teachers need to have excellent subject knowledge but this alone will not translate to your child becoming knowledgeable. Teachers need to facilitate learning and help children to develop the skills to become 'learners' themselves. Parents too play a vital role in this process and in developing the right attitudes towards learning, achievement and failure. At Ewell Castle School, we have been exploring techniques to further develop positive attitudes to learning, building resilience and promote the children's responsibility towards their own learning. Further to our presentation to Preparatory School parents on Tuesday 21st March please click on the pdf to view a presentation which will provide more details.
