This paper presents a descriptive research study on the perceptions of a group of 171 primary school teachers about their creativity. In particular, the research focused on beliefs related to the nature of creativity, its importance in education, and the benefits that it offers, both individually and socially. The main objective is to ascertain whether their perceptions correspond with current research on creativity, or alternatively with outdated concepts. In addition, the participants were asked about the methodologies that they consider to be effective for developing creativity. As an instrument, a Likert-style questionnaire with two open-ended questions at the end was used. The results indicate that most of the teachers consider creativity to be very important, however, certain ideas based on an archaic understanding of creativity still exist. Similarly, there is a lack of knowledge about teaching methodologies that can be employed to develop creativity.
