Welcome to Bedford Public School
Welcome to Ecole Bedford Public School. We are a JK to grade 6, dual-track, French Immersion/English school on the north side of the Avon River in Stratford. We are close to the Stratford Festival Theatre and the beautiful parkland along the river.
The enrolment for 2014-15 is approximately 410 students. We have four Full Day Learning classes for Kindergarten students, beginning this year, and we are excited to welcome the youngest members of the Bedford Bulldog community to JK and SK every day. Kindergarten registration (CATYO) takes place in November of the year preceding entry to JK or SK. We have six English stream classes grade 1-6 and eight grade 1 – 6 French Immersion classes. Registration for French immersion takes place in January for grade 1 entry the following school year.
Our Bulldog mascot is worn proudly at many extra-curricular events as our students are involved in a wide variety of activities beyond the classroom. We hope everyone will find ways to dive into the life of our community through academics, sports, arts, environmental and leadership opportunities. The more you get involved in your school, the richer your experience.
School Council is an active and involved parent group at our school. We meet once per month to discuss upcoming school events and to plan for activities to involve students and families. We welcome new members and hope you will find ways to contribute to some Bedford traditions, either by joining in what is planned or by bringing new ideas forward.
Every year brings changes. This year is no exception as we welcome nine new staff members to renew and reenergize us with some fresh ideas to enhance and build on great Bedford traditions. Go Purple People.
