We believe Morden is a highly successful school. This is down to our happy, friendly children; dedicated and hardworking staff; supportive parents and governors and our exciting and engaging learning environment. Working together in partnerships with parents, we strive towards our school motto – Learn, Achieve, Enjoy!
Our main school aim is to ensure that all children reach their personal best.
At Morden we have high expectations of children, staff and parents. We are very proud of the team of staff who work together to ensure that the children receive their entitlement of the best possible education. We expect parents to take an active role in their children’s experience at Morden and to work with the school to ensure their child maximises their future life chances and opportunities.
Every child at Morden receives an achievement card where they can strive towards collecting stickers for showing they are trying their personal best to earn bronze, silver, gold and platinum certificates and badges. Once they earn a platinum certificate, they work towards being presented with a hummingbird badge.
Why the hummingbird? In Native American culture, the hummingbird symbolizes hope for accomplishing that which seems impossible. My hope is that every child who walks through our door accomplishes their best, even if the mountain to climb seems impossible! By choosing Morden Primary for your child, you choose to work alongside us to aspire towards your child achieving their personal best - whether that's academic, sporting, or through the arts. We want exactly the same as you - The very best for your child.
AUSTRALIA DAY MONEY RAISED Thank you so much for your support with our fundraising effort for the bushfires in Australia. We managed to persuade a total of 20 schools to participate in various events. We raised a massive £781! The koalas listed at the end of the newsletter were chosen by the children to be sponsored by their class. The remaining money was donated to the conservation foundation. The koala hospital purchased property not far from the Koala hospital for conservation and plantation to harvest leaf for the hospitalised koalas and help them to reintegrate back into the wild. The 230 acres is about 10km from the koala hospital. The children are really keen to have an acre named as “Morden Primary” but unfortunately the donation needs to be $2000 and we didn’t quite make that target. I am so proud of the efforts of our children and the generosity of all our community – THANK YOU. In addition, the artwork, creative writing and cross curricular work as result of children being inspired has been stunning! https://www.koalahospital.org.au/
