Chesterton is an Outstanding two form entry inner city primary school located in the heart of Battersea. At Chesterton our vision is to nurture great learners. We are committed to supporting children to meet their full potential for their futures, allowing all children to shine. Everything we do is underpinned by our three school values: Pride, Resilience and Kindness. With the support of our community, we aim to provide children with the knowledge and skills needed to allow them to flourish as they grow.
Our curriculum design allows time for children to think, discuss, practise, explore and embed learning, to ensure opportunity for depth of knowledge throughout.
At Chesterton we offer an extensive, creative curriculum. We believe that giving children opportunities to learn across a range of locations including the outside environment is hugely beneficial. We have exciting learning spaces, which are integral to our weekly timetable. We also have a full programme of enrichment trips in and around London and beyond, including local museums, art galleries and farms.
The school has embraced the National Curriculum and has designed exciting and relevant cross-curricular topics, while maintaining a strong focus on English and Maths. These topics, which begin with an exciting launch morning, engage the children in their learning and provide them with a rich vocabulary to support their writing. Our curriculum provision is enhanced by specialist teachers who team teach Spanish, computing, music and PE alongside the class teachers. In all subjects, the learning objectives are heavily focused on developing the children’s skills which will equip them for lifelong learning.
Here at Chesterton we are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School and have achieved the Gold award. We learn about our rights but we also learn ‘through’ our rights. Our pupils are stepping up and making a difference in their local community and world at large.
At Chesterton, pupils know that no matter your age or where you live, we can all make a positive impact – whether that’s volunteering, fundraising or raising awareness for causes that matter. Our pupils strive to achieve their best for themselves and for others.
