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”

It has been another busy week in the Middle Phase.  We all started this week participating in the ‘World’s largest lesson’, finding out about some of the sustainable development goals and what we can do to help our world.

Also this week, Year 4 enjoyed a visit to Gatton Park, Reigate.  Here they got to participate in a range of team building activities such as den building and shipwrecked challenges!  It was a fabulous day out in beautiful surroundings! 

Year 3 have started their singing project this week.  Look out for more details about this in the coming weeks.

Upper Phase

Upper phase had a busy week last week with the Harvest Festival, RE trip and some exciting Heyday news! 

Our children brought in so many donations for the Harvest Festival this year so a BIG thank you to all the adults at home. Year 6 went on an exciting trip to The Buddhist Temple in Wimbledon and had a lovely time experiencing a temple in real life. This supported us with all of our learning in RE about Buddhism this term. Thank you to our lovely adults that came with us! 

In other exciting news, some selected year 6 pupils have been working with Jack and Luke from Heyday to brainstorm ideas for their new film. They are involved in all aspects of the film making; from directing to acting, writing to editing. At the end of the term the pupils will have made a film that will be shown at the BFI in Southbank on Monday 10th December! 11 different schools from 6 different boroughs will be there to watch our Chesterton film​. Very are very proud to be a part of this.
