A warm welcome to Morden Primary School.
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 new school motto – Learn, Achieve, Enjoy! Our main school aim is to ensure that all children reach their personal best.
At Morden I have high expectations of children, staff and parents. I am very proud of the team of staff who work together to ensure that the children receive their entitlement of the best possible education. I 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.
This year we are introducing a new reward program. Every child at Morden will receive 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. Once they earn a platinum certificate, they will be 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!
