Transcript of Growth Mindset SALT Session

Growth Mindset
Why are we interested in Growth Mindset?
Our most successful students embody the growth mindset

Our least successful don't believe they can be successful learners
How do we enact a Growth Mindset approach?
You are a bright girl, Abigail, and you are clearly a gifted historian
Engaging all groups
Changing Mindsets
1. Learn to hear your "fixed mindset" voice
2. Recognise that you have a choice
3. Talk back in your "growth mindset" voice
4. Take action
Rich Tea or Hob Nob?
Example Practice
Huntingdon School, York: SDP is "Growth Mindset and nowt else"
You work in a growth mindset school
What does it:
look like?
feel like?
sound like?
Your mindset questionnaires
Carol Dweck PhD
Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University

What is Growth Mindset?

New Heys School, Liverpool
What message does this send about the need for hard work, effort and resilience?
That's great; you're brilliant at this
That's great; you've worked really hard at this
Evidence from PASS
Perceived Learning Capability
measures pupils' views of how positive and successful they feel in their specific capabilities as learners
51.5% - the lowest PASS score
Static for three years
Boys 49.2%, Girls 53.9%
Y8 saw PLC decline by 11.7%
Y11 PLC score is 42.1%
If we want to achieve 90% Level 2 English and Maths we need to change
Compared to "feelings about school" which averages 62.3%
Growth Mindset with Y11 boys in Science
Raise the bar from a 'C'
11 students - ideal for a pilot
GCSE year is challenging so may benefit them
They were willing to be involved
1. Complete a mindset survey
2. Complete an 'Interests and Success' assessment
Scores ranged from Fixed to Growth Mindset
We discussed what a Growth Mindset was 'like'
I shared FFT Data to show them all grades are possible: from A* to U
The key is taking action to make desired grades more likely
That failure is an essential part of learning; "take a risk, have a go!"
That with persistent effort, intelligence can be improved, even if you cannot do this "yet!"
I WAS NOT BORN A TEACHER! (no matter how 'gifted' my Mum says I am)
“Achieving your ambitions and having a job you enjoy”

“Gaining status or a respectable name for myself. Being the choice for someone in need of help”

“Making my family proud, feels great”
What success looks and feels like for some of the boys:
Has it had an impact on attainment?
With many variables, it pays to be cautious, however...
The 11 boys finished Year 10 with 2 B, 8 C, 1 D

The 11 boys averaged C/D borderline scores in all Physics progress tests before starting #BiscuitClub

The greatest reward as a teacher has been their change in attitude; a greater 'can do', or at least 'I will try', approach

In the Physics mock exam they achieved 1 A*, 1 A, 5 B, 3 C, 1 D

Intelligence is fixed
Intelligence can grow
