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'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 is part of a local Maths Hub and of the Wandle Teaching School Alliance.

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

World Book Week

Monday 26th February is the start of World Book Week when we will be celebrating reading and all things books! There will be a whole school competition (details of how to enter and prizes to follow). We will also be visited by acclaimed children's author Nicholas Allan who will be holding a workshop with the Lower School. Excitingly, the children from Year 2 upwards will be visited by Bookman, a literary superhero who will be getting children involved in workshops on reading. 

On World Book Day itself (Thursday 1st March) all children are invited to come dressed as their favourite book character. Finally, if you want to get the day off to a great start we're holding family reading breakfasts on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th February and also on Thursday 1st March. Everyone welcome from 8.30am to 8.45am - juice and snacks provided and plenty of stories. We suggest a £1 donation per family if you choose to come.  


2I parents - invitation to assembly

All parents and carers with children in 2I are invited to join us for a class assembly. Please arrive by 10.25am so we can start promptly at 10.30am.

Lower Phase

Feb 23, 2018

This week in Lower Phase both Nursery and Reception have been learning in Forest School. Children have been looking at different camping equipment and thinking how to use it safely, exploring natural materials and working as a team to build different constructions.

The children have also been exploring the physical possibilities of the outdoor environment by tree climbing, rolling down hills amongst a few fun activities.

In the Forest School the children are encouraged to take calculated risks and the adults are there to support and protect them.


Middle Phase

This week Year 3 were lucky enough to have a Spanish workshop on the theme of Picasso.  They learnt about his abstract work and then created their own design based on his paintings.

Also, 2I have been busy learning their lines and rehearsing their class assembly which is on next Wednesday.  Look out for more on that next week!

Upper Phase

This week Year 6 have been taking part in debates about our topic of Protect and Preserve.

During the half term we have learnt all about the causes of deforestation and the devastating effect it is having on our rainforests and our world.

We have been using our knowledge from the half term to debate about reasons why we should and should not stop logging within rainforests. During our debate we gave various reasons for and against whilst using conjunctions to structure our arguments.
