Welcome to Jean Batten School.  We want your association with this school to be pleasant and rewarding so that we can work together for the benefit of your child.


At Jean Batten School we endeavour to foster an environment of trust, sharing and respect for others so that students will feel secure and enjoy success in everything they do.  We want the students to be happily involved in the learning programmes that the school offers.


We see the school as an integral part of the community and the active support and involvement of parents/caregivers is welcomed.  Your support of the school is vital to ensuring that the students have as many opportunities as possible during their time at Jean Batten School.


We are sure that your involvement with Jean Batten School will be an enjoyable one.  Please take advantage of all the opportunities that will arise to enable us to work together to provide the best educational experience we can for your child.

Introducing Regan Scally

Kia ora, Jean Batten School whanau.  My name is Regan Scally and my role here at Jean Batten School is a psychologist, supporting students with their behavioural needs.

I have been a part of the JBS community now for about a year and a half. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working alongside students, whanau and the school staff to support our students within and outside of school.

I am originally from Christchurch.  I moved to Auckland in 2013 with my partner to continue my study and I have stayed here for work. Most of my whanau still live in Christchurch, including my father, mother and younger sister. My older brother lived in Whangarei for a couple of years but is now about to go travelling. My younger brother also lives in Auckland.

My younger brother and I have recently joined the same rugby team. I also like to spend my time hanging out with friends, watching stand-up comedy, playing games, eating good food and exercising.  

I am here to support whanau when there are serious concerns around a child’s behaviour at school. You first need to discuss concerns with your child’s teacher and then with the Deputy Principal/Senco, Helen French before a referral can go ahead.
