Have you ever come across a pupil who was angry, defiant, vindictive, and spiteful – and you couldn’t put your finger on the cause?

Why? The answer is that with the right mindset, a growth mindset, anyone can become a Great Learner. That happens once pupils can see how it works.
If they can see it, they can be it.
