Growth Mindset

At Linton Heights Junior School, our pupils have a positive attitude towards their learning and as a result make good progress, are happy and successful.


Instilling all our pupils with 'growth mindsets' has become a key priority for LHJS. We have introduced the theories of Dr Carol Dweck to staff, pupils and parents and are determined to ensure that its ideas remain embedded within our school ethos.


Fostering a growth mindset, across all areas of the curriculum, allows our pupils to relish challenges, embrace their mistakes as part of the learning process, value the importance of effort, respond carefully to feedback and take inspiration from others. This helps them to achieve, not only with us, but also in their future lives as adults.
