At Paget High School, we believe that ability is not fixed and that with hard work and a positive attitude towards learning, good progress will be made. We subscribe to the theories of Dr Carol Dweck and have started to embed her ideas into our school ethos.
We want our students to value effort, embrace challenge, respond to feedback and view their mistakes as the first step in learning. We want them to have high aspirations for themselves and believe that their goals are attainable. We believe that this mindset will help students to achieve whilst at Paget, but also in their future lives.Central to this approach to learning is the theory of Growth Mindset. This theory identifies the characteristics of learners with a fixed and a growth mindset.
At Paget our motto is Aspire to be more… and key elements of a Growth Mindset focus on the main word A S P I R E.
