At Ysgol Bryn Gwalia, we have an enquiry-based curriculum that is ideal for developing positive mindsets in our children. Growth Mindset is a belief that with work, perseverance, you can improve any skill.
Ysgol Bryn Gwalia are currently part of the Strand 3 Formative Assessment for schools project. Part of this project looks at learning culture and the work of Carol Dweck who is an authority on self-esteem. She looks at fixed and growth mindsets and the strategies for developing a growth mindset in learners.
Fixed Mindset- People with fixed mindsets will only tackle tasks which they know, i advance, they will succeed at.
Growth Mindset-People with a growth mindset not only willingly tackle difficult tasks, but thrive on them.
At YBG we aim to develop a growth mindset for all staff, for parents, governors and learners themselves.
Below is a selection of documentation that explains how Growth Mindset is developed at Ysgol Bryn Gwalia.
