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.

“An outstanding school that provides a very high quality of education for its pupils”

This week in Lower Phase we are so proud and impressed with the amazing performance of our youngest children in Nursery class assembly. The children all worked hard and showed how brave they could be to perform to such a large audience. Well done to all the children and adults who helped them get performance ready, your hard work really paid off!

Year 6 had fantastic time with St Johns Ambulance today learning about key first aid techniques. The children learnt how to put each other in the recovery position, used mannequins to deliver CPR and learnt how to bandage injuries. Thanks to St Johns Ambulance for helping teach us some key life skills!
