Growth Mindset



At Dunston Primary and Nursery Academy we promote a growth mindset to learning. Children don’t always find their learning easy; however, instead of giving up and being disheartened, we encourage children to be resilient and remain optimistic, using phrases such as ‘I can’t do this…yet’ or ‘This is tricky, what else can I try?’
