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.

Lower Phase

Jun 14, 2019

This week in Nursery, we have really enjoyed exploring our new jungle role play area. We have used the animal masks to create our own characters and thought about the importance of taking care of our environment. 

This week in Reception, we have been learning about the lifecycles of butterflies and frogs. We even had a very special delivery of caterpillars that we are watching grow in our classrooms!

This week in 1R we have been learning all about different types of measurements. We measured using rubbers, hands, pencils and even pillows! We found out that Miss D is 9 hands high and she is taller than Miss Ryall!

In 1M, we have been practising our underarm throw using a variety of resources. We particularly enjoyed using our target boards!

Middle Phase

May 17, 2019

What a busy week we have had in Middle Phase!. All of the children in years 2,3 and 4 took part in an Eco workshop which was based around recycling different materials from your homes, such as yogurt pots and milk cartons and turning them into something amazing! This year as a school, we have been focussed on learning about our sustainable development goals and how we can look after our planet. Tom, who led the workshop, was SO impressed by everyone’s recycling knowledge. Everyone had the opportunity to make their own recycled notebook made out of old maps and recycled paper.

This week in Year 3, the children have been looking at persuasive writing. They were set the challenge of trying to persuade Miss Smith and Mr Siswick to let us go to Africa for our Summer Term trip! Their writing was amazing and very persuasive. We’ll have wait and see what Miss Smith’s and Mr Siwswick’s final decision will be!

Upper Phase

Jun 21, 2019

We've had another fantastic week in Upper Phase. Year 6 have been busy practising for their end of year performance of Annie and we are so excited to show you all our hard work in just a few weeks time. Year 5 had a great day out on Wednesday.  They went to the Southbank Centre for a Gamelan workshop (Indonesian music) and walked down Southbank on a poetry trail and even visited the London Poetry Library! We all finished the week with an own clothes day to collect donations for our Great Fete on Saturday 6th July. See you there!
