Principal’s message

Welcome back to Bedford Park P.S. - 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians | Chers parents et tuteurs,

Welcome to Bedford Park Public School!

Bedford Park is a large dual track K-8 school that includes the Extended French programme beginning in Grade 4 as well as the regular English program beginning in Junior Kindergarten. After completing Grade 8, our students continue their intermediate studies at a variety of local high schools.

At Bedford Park PS we are committed to working professionally, respectfully, and inclusively with our students, their parents and various community stakeholders. We strive to build strong, healthy, and supportive relationships where all members of the school community are respected and valued.

Our school motto is, “Respect, Responsibility, and Safety is Number one at Bedford”.

It is our goal to help students develop self-discipline and a positive attitude towards learning so that they can become productive, caring, and responsible members of society. We strive to provide a learning environment where our students will be happy, successful, and challenged to think critically and communicate effectively. The above represents the wonderful qualities of our favourite people – our students!

Our teachers are strongly committed to high academic standards as evidenced in our EQAO results. We believe that a strong partnership between home and school is a sure recipe for the success of all of our children. Communication is at the heart of this recipe and most of our teachers use a class website or Google Classroom to post critical information for parents, such as homework and tests as well as links to valuable resources to assist the children with their learning.

As the Administrative Team, we do our utmost to ensure that every child is learning, making progress, and feels that Bedford Park is a safe and happy place to come to school. We always welcome parent input into the many aspects of school management and leadership. We have a dedicated group of parents who form our School Council. We always welcome new parents to join us at our meetings.

We recognize the importance of the collaborative role of both parents and staff in the total education of students. We encourage positive, on-going communication so that together, parents and staff can work as partners towards the healthy development of each child. As your children progress through school, you can support and encourage them by taking an interest in their daily activities, having rich conversations, reading to your children, and monitoring homework completion. Participating in school-community activities and events will ensure a strong partnership between home and school.

We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible educational opportunities for each student. Thank you for your supportive partnership in your children’s education.

Once again, welcome and bienvenue to Bedford Park PS!
