Growing Young Minds

Growth Mindsets

We are a Growth Mindset School. So what does this mean?

We believe that how intelligent we are isn’t fixed but that through hard work, struggle and embracing mistakes and failure as opportunities to learn, we can all ‘grow our brains smarter’.
We value and celebrate.

• Perseverance   • Embracing Challenge   • Learning from Mistakes

At Sticklepath Community Primary Academy we believe – really, truly believe – that every child can succeed and excel through hard work, perseverance and commitment and it is our job, best served in partnership with parents, to enable this to happen.


We are passionate about learning and design the most exciting, relevant and academically challenging learning experiences that enable children to think deeply about the world and their place within it. 

We constantly reflect, practise, question and challenge ourselves and our children to grow and improve. We pride ourselves on our trusting, respectful relationships where everyone feels supported to take risks, learn from their mistakes and become the very best that they can be.

Learning is a journey we are all on and we look forward to welcoming you aboard!
