Parent Evenings

This term parent evenings will be held on Tuesday 6th December and Thursday 8th December from 3.40pm until 6pm both nights for Reception – Year 5 Classes. Year 2 parents evening will be on Tuesday 6th December from 3:40pm until 6pm. Please book your appointments by selecting a time on the board in the school foyer.

Welcome to our great school! And a great school it is, not only because of the recognition it receives but because the children at the school achieve great things.

I am privileged to be the Headteacher of a school which has an extraordinary staff team who work seamlessly with massively committed parents. The very high standards we achieve in all areas emerge very naturally from this effective partnership.

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".
