About our ATP
The Senior School, in conjunction with the National Parents' Council (NPC) and the Irish Primary Principals' Network (IPPN) established our first Action Team Partnership Committee in early 2016.
Action Team Partnership (ATP) is an American initiative which aims to establish a committee to enhance the educational opportunities provided by the school. Members of the school staff, parents, pupils and people from the local community meet and work together in partnership.
This partnership gives all members the opportunity to work together to support the work of the school. Yearly goals and targets are set to support learning in two curriculum areas, a behavioural area and in making the school a more welcoming place.
Our ATP Goals
Our 2018/19 ATP committee met first in December and decided to actively pursue the four goals for the school year 2018/19. We have been working hard on these since December and have included a current update on our progress in achieving the goals overleaf.
We will continue to work hard during the school year to achieve our goals. Please enjoy our achievements to date -visit our school website to see our Class Blogs. We would also ask all parents to complete our survey on the school website so that we can improve accessibility and information for parents on the school website. Please take part in the survey by following the link sent by school text today.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you would like any further information on the work our ATP Committee.
