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”

Friday 27th April is our school-wide WE Walk for Water event where we fundraise to provide access to clean water for those who need it most. Once they are back in school, the children will be learning about the importance of clean water and the factors that stand in the way of some people in the world from getting it. All our lessons will be linked to our UNICEF Rights Respecting work. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@ChestertonSch) for lots of updates.

All children have been given a sponsorship form, and you can also donate online at this link (did you know that just £15 can provide one person with access to clean water for life?)

Lower Phase

This week the children in year 1 have visited Battersea local mosque. As part of our diverse RE curriculum the children are learning all about the Islamic religion. This is now the children's second visit to a religious building.

They learnt about the importance and symbolism of the building. How it is used for worship and how Muslims prepare to worship and why.

Thank you so much to Falcon Road mosque for inviting us in and allowing the children to learn and explore and a huge thank you to all the parents who came with us, we couldn't have gone without you.

We have had a very busy start to the summer term in Middle Phase. All of the classes enjoyed their topic launches on Tuesday. Many thanks to the parents who joined us for all of the exciting activities. 

On Wednesday, Year 2 visited the local church and found out all about Easter and how this is celebrated in the Christian church. All of the children behaved extremely well and their teachers were very proud of them.

2M also spent time in the Edible Garden harvesting their salad leaves that they planted last term.

Also, this week, we were lucky enough to have a visit from a poet who talked about different writing techniques in poetry and altogether used alliteration to come up with a class poem called Zoo Alphabet.
