Growth Mindset


At Aycliffe Drive Primary School we are a learning community. Our whole school culture
is underpinned by the principles of growth mindset and we believe that there are no
limits to what we can achieve.

A child with a growth mindset is open to constructive criticism, takes feedback and
uses it, takes on new challenges, pushes themselves outside of their comfort zone and
shows resilience and perseverance.

The core statements of the school’s growth mindset were written by the children
