Growth Mindset and Learning Behaviours
At Queen Emma Primary School we aim to foster ‘Learning for Life’, providing a curriculum that inspires a lifelong love of learning and equips our pupils with the key knowledge and understanding, skills and personal qualities they will need to thrive in a rapidly changing world. As part of this we are committed to developing a growth mindset in all members of the school community and encouraging learning behaviours that support this.

A growth mindset says:

I love a challenge

I can always improve

When I’m frustrated, I persevere

My effort and attitude determine my success

Mistakes help me learn

There’s no time to lose

It’s time to try a new strategy

Only my best is good enough

I can learn from others

Together we will succeed

Learning Behaviours to nurture a growth mindset in EYFS

Learning Behaviours to develop a growth mindset in KS1 and KS2

J challenging yourself

J perseverance

J focus & concentration

J working together

These learning behaviours are displayed in each classroom and celebrated weekly through one or two children receiving a certificate in class, linked to one of the learning behaviours. This is then recorded on a class display so the children can remember what they have achieved.

Weekly class council meetings focus on particular themes (e.g. trust, friendship, perseverance), which are linked to the learning behaviours where possible. By Year 6, we would expect children to understand these behaviours fully and be able to explain why they are important.
