What is role of the PTA?
The Parent Association is the structure through which parents/guardians in a school can work together for the best possible education for their children
The Education Act, 1998 sets down the role of the parent association.
The Parent Association works with the principal, staff and the board of management to build effective partnership of home and school.
The Parent Association can advise the principal and Board of Management on policy issues and incidents that may require a review of school policy, e.g. Bullying, Safety, Homework, Enrolment, Behaviour problems etc.
Parent Associations can suggest and/or organise extra-curricular activities.
The Parent Association is a support for parents in the school.
The Parent Association can invite speakers to address the parents on issues which are topical or relevant.
The Parent Association is not a forum for complaint against either an individual teacher or parent. The Complaints Procedure is the mechanism for this.
