First of allPTA Updates

Welcome to Sutton Park School Parent Teacher Association!  All parents/guardians of children currently enrolled in Junior School, Intermediate School and Senior School are automatically members of the PTA, can join in all of its activities and can be elected to become members of the committee at the Annual PTA Meeting.  

What is the PTA?

Sutton Park School PTA works in partnership with the School’s Board of Management and Senior Management Team to help build a positive and engaging learning environment from Junior Infants right through to Sixth Year Students.  We do this by providing practical and financial support to enable the school to host events, activities and initiatives that enrich the students’ experience of day-to-day school life during the year.  The PTA also approves funding from its budget for added-value school projects/items that would not otherwise be funded from the school’s annual budgets

The PTA provides a two-way mechanism for communication between the parent body and Board of Management and Senior Management Team, on appropriate school matters.

The school allocates a proportion of fees each year to the PTA to enable the PTA to carry out its work.  The Annual General Meeting is held at the start of each new School academic year where accounts and reports are presented and parents voted in as Committee Members.  Nominated teachers join with elected parents to form the PTA Committee.
