Dean Gibson Catholic Primary School 

Dean Gibson Catholic Primary School is situated on the edge of Kendal. We have a wide and diverse catchment area.  At Dean Gibson, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child in our care. As a staff we know your children have the right to have aspirations and to know that they are precious in the eyes of God. In partnership with you we model the Gospel values of care, compassion and diligence on which our enterprise is based. In short, we encourage our children to have what Basil Hume called "a zest for living life to the full".

Children with Special Needs

The extent to which a child with special needs is able to enter into the life of our school is a reflection of the policies and practices we develop.  Our  school ensures children with special educational needs overcome their difficulties and celebrate their strengths.  We provide our children with the skills they need to embrace their challenges and make progress.  We aim to create an atmosphere of encouragement, acceptance, and respect for achievement and sensitivity to individual needs, in which all pupils can thrive.  We teach to the potential, whatever the barrier, whatever the challenge - we develop the whole child.  All our children are loved as individuals.  Our children enjoy a warm, caring, nurturing environment in which confidence and self-esteem grow.  "We are valued for who we are." (Year 6 child).
