Primary schools in SW11/Battersea area - a bit of a desert, any ideas?

Hi - I live off the latchmere road - so too far for Honeywell and Belville sadly. What are other good primary schools in our area? There is one on our road, but the children all swear bucket loads and the staff seem really disinterested. I dropped off a whole load of sainsburys/tescos vouchers and a charming little boy came up to scare my DD by attempting to karate kick her. Luckily DD didn't pay much attention. A lot of the children get pushed to school in their buggies eating crisps and drinking coke for what appears to be their breakfast. Private schooling at this stage would bankrupt us, although I wouldn't rule it out for later on. Just want a nice friendly school where daughter can make friends and where perhaps I can too. We're fairly new to area and my DH works abroad a lot.
Thanks

Are you RC by any chance?
Sacred Heart is very good.
High View, off Plough Terrace has an excellent head and staff....may not look much from the outside, but don't let that put you off.

You don't have to be RC to go to thier school, although if a popular school which is oversubscribed it will usually have religion in their first few admissions criteria.

There is a better choice across the bridge. Lots of children from the area go to Christchirch or the Oratory. Both are faith schools and require chirch attendance though.
