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 term, our first group of Nursery children started Forest School with Mr Kheir and Miss Thurston. In Forest school the children have listened to stories, built a house for the Three Little Pigs, drank hot chocolate, made leaf crowns and found treasure in a treasure hunt! Thank you so much our lovely parents who volunteered to join the Forest School fun.
What a busy week in middle phase! We have lots to tell you about. Year 3 had their first winter sounds performance on Wednesday at Christchurch School—it was fantastic! Over the past 8 weeks they have been learning lots of different songs and dances and on Wednesday they performed them all with the year 4 children from Christchurch. They were absolutely fantastic and it was so lovely to see so many parents with proud faces. Well done Year 3!
From one musical concert to another— Year 4 had their first performance of their clarinets and saxaphones on Wednesday afternoon. It was a brilliant performance and it was great to see how quickly they learnt to play these quite tricky instruments. Miss Mathias, Miss Holt and Miss Mogan were all very proud of all of the children.
Year 2 have also had a very busy week this week taking part in their WE volunteer campaign. Our super Year 2s went down to Nursery this week to volunteer read with the children. Miss Innes and Miss Snell were so proud of how all the children behaved and they can’t wait to do it again soon!
This week year 6 have been concentrating on Wildlife Conservation day and have been producing some amazing writing:
Famous conservation artist, Charlotte Mary Pack, on Wildlife Conservation Day made 100 elephants out of clay in 24 hours to represent the amount of elephants that are killed in this time. During her live feed we saw her finally complete her mission with 3 seconds to spare. What an amazing way to raise awareness for these amazing animals, who do not have a voice like we do, and to help others understand the importance of protecting them! #100elephantsin24hrs
They were also lucky enough to get to go to the Imperial War Museum to find out even more about their topic of WW2 and had a great time. Massive thank you to the parents that came and helped us!
Year 5 have started making their soft toys for the end of their art project and are really enjoying using their stitching techniques that they have been learning all about this term. They have also started making their own websites that they have been designing this term. Looking forward to seeing the final projects!
