Growth Mindset

Danesfield is a ‘Growth Mindset’ school where children are taught to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. 

 

This philosophy, inspired by Carol Dweck, promotes a lifelong way to build and repair children’s resilience and confidence, reassuring children that it’s ok to make mistakes as we learn from them. 

We focus on encouraging and praising the effort children put in to their work and the persistence they demonstrate, rather than the end result. Within the walls at Danesfield, you won't hear children saying, 'I can't do this,' but rather, 'I can't do this yet!'
