Growth Mindset 

At Sambourne, we encourage all children to have a growth mindset approach towards their learning.

Carol Dweck, a lead practitioner in this field defines a growth mindset as a learner who:

  • Takes on challenges
  • Learns from mistakes
  • Accepts feedback and criticism
  • Practises and applies strategies
  • Perseveres and focuses
  • Asks questions 

Sambourne's mantra is:

'If you try, try, try you can, can, can.'
