Welcome to Chesterton Primary School

Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision and we hope that this website provides you with all the necessary information to help you make an informed choice.

Welcome to Chesterton. We are an Ofsted Outstanding 2 Form Entry inner city primary school situated in the heart of Battersea, south west London. We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School which holds the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at its heart. Our rich curriculum empowers pupils to be active, global ctizens and develop a participatory approach to their world. Learning through rights allows our pupils to cultivate positive relationships with both peers and adults, supporting their education for life.

We're fortunate to have a Children's Centre co-located on our school site meaning we can offer education, and a wide range of services for families and their children aged 0 to 11. Our school leads the South West London Maths Hub, the Wandle Teaching School Alliance and the Wandle Early Years Hub.

In Nursery the children have been using the construction blocks to build pirate ships. They build big ships, small ships, tall ships for the pirates to get the treasure. Then they worked together to find a way to deliver the treasure to all the pirates by car and they created a road network so that the treasure didn’t get wet in the sea! Lovely imaginative play!​

Reception have been learning about postal workers in their ‘People Who Help Us’ topic. They have been writing letters and postcards to Polly the Postlady.

Year One have been thinking of adventurous adjectives to describe animals from South America, including species of penguins.

This week Year 2 got to put all their knowledge they have learnt this term about explorers to practise! They were incredibly brave, resilient and courageous as they crossed the obstacles in the air at Go Ape! They used teamwork and kindness to encourage each other along the course and every single pupil became a great explorer! In the meantime, Year 4 have been busy applying difficult skills to build their very own race cars! They put them to test in a race against each other to discover what makes a car zoom! Have a happy holiday, from Middle phase!

We have had an excellent final week of term and have enjoyed the sunshine! Year 5 have been working on their WE Campaign called 'WE Rise Above' which focuses on the impact of cyber bullying on young people across the UK. They have been doing research, writing diary entries and using their voice to raise awareness of the issues. They have created leaflets to hand out to classes about how to be good digital citizens, and they have placed posters around the school to ensure we are using technology for the power of good!

They have also been out in the community using their voices for good. ​On Thursday, 14 Year 5's represented Chesterton at City Hall. They were shortlisted as one of three ​top finalists on their water saving project encouraging people to have shorter showers and to turn off dripping taps. They were very impressive in their speeches and wowed the judges with their knowledge of the sustainable development goals! They could also speak confidently on impact of drinking dirty water and the illnesses that plague millions around the world. Well done!​

The Year 6's have been working on designing a Multi-Faith Room here at Chesterton. This will help us all enjoy our right to practise our own religion (UNCRC Article #14). They have been listening to a range of music, exploring important features and have been collecting texts and artefacts to display.
