Application form


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 accessible at all times through our ‘open door’ policy which enables you to come and discuss matters relating to the academic or social development of your child.  Concerns are often quickly resolved through discussion. It is important, therefore, that good communication is maintained between home and school and you are urged to contact the school if you have any queries or worries. If you wish to speak with a teacher, please telephone and arrange an appointment time. You will appreciate that teachers can not be interrupted to speak to parents/caregivers during the school day so it is necessary that messages and inquiries about your child are directed through the office.


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.
