Some people tend to give up easily or avoid things that they know might be difficult or that they have failed at before. They tend to believe that being good at something is a fixed state this is what we call a “fixed mentality”.
Some people tend to bounce back from disappointment or failure and more likely to explore how they can get better at doing something. They tend to be people that believe you can improve your ability by practising, effort and persistence, this way of thinking is called “growth mentality”.

Schools know that if pupils have a positive attitude towards learning they will make greater progress and be successful, so they will already be instilling all pupils with a growth mentality and embed the ideas into the ethos of the school.
