At Farnborough Road Infant School we support our whole school community; children, staff and parents in developing positive mental health and wellbeing.
There are 5 steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing.
If you give them a try, you may feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life.
Developing the right mindset early on is crucial for a successful, happy life. When children learn that putting in effort, practice and using the right strategies can help them get better at things, they feel empowered, and try harder. When they know their brains are capable of growing, they are more confident, resilient, and are not afraid to fail!
At Farnborough Road Infants we encourage our children to have a Growth Mindset by teaching the appropriate language to use when they are learning - e.g. practice, perseverance, resilience, don't give up and I can't do it YET!
