About Uspocketfinal.jpg

 
 
How We Meet the Diverse Needs of Our Students
 
 
Catholic Foundation
 
St. Edmund Campion School is committed to Catholic education as outlined in the Mission Statement of the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Our students come to us with a variety of strengths and needs, with our Catholic faith as our common bond. Our prayer life, liturgical celebrations, the sacraments, and our faith and values system form the foundation of our program.
 
Our school policy encompasses routines and procedures which ensure a safe and welcoming learning environment for all students. The code of behaviour emphasizes mutual respect, conflict resolution and self-discipline. The safe arrival program encourages constant home to school communication when a student is absent or late.
 
Our instructional programs are continually being adapted to meet the individual needs of our students. Students who experience difficulty with regular classroom work are discussed in our school-based support network, and instruction is modified as needed. If necessary, we can call upon the support of the joint team, which includes TCDSB staff such as a social worker, psychometrician, assessment and programming teacher, and other specialized personnel. Parents are always invited to participate in the review process, and are kept apprised of modifications and progress
