Dean Gibson Catholic Primary School 

Dean Gibson Catholic Primary School is situated on the edge of Kendal. We serve a wide area including surrounding villages. As a Catholic School, the philosophy and ethos of Dean Gibson is firmly rooted in Catholic tradition, with an emphasis on the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

We have well behaved motivated children, who are keen to learn and enjoy their work. Our ICT suite has enhanced our ICT facilities and contributes to the raising of standards in this area and across the whole of the curriculum. 

It is our aim to make Dean Gibson Catholic Primary School a happy place: an extension of a happy family home. The teachers and staff wish to be partners with parents/carers in sharing the privilege of educating children to a high standard.

Children with Special Needs

A half-termly check is made by the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator and class teacher in order to ensure that children with special needs are identified, helped and monitored. At Dean Gibson we believe that every child needs to be taught as individually as possible. Work is planned so that those who are less able and more able are supported within the classroom to work with more confidence at their own level. Classes are flexible enough to allow children to work with others of similar ability for particular topics and activities.
