We believe children becoming leaders has a positive impact on our school. Pupil Voice is essential at Morden and as such, we have introduced a PLT (Pupil Leadership Team) from September 2019. The PLT comprises of a Head Girl and Head Boy; Y6 House Captains (who lead the 5 hummingbird teams); Y5 Sports Leaders and our School council members. PLT regularly meet with the Senior Leadership team to share their ideas for school improvement.
The application process for Head Girl/Boy is rigorous and democratic. Year 6 children had to prepare a speech and deliver it to KS2 children detailing how they demonstrated Morden Values and why they would be a great leader. Each class and staff member then voted for one boy and one girl.
These children will represent the school at events, will show guests and visitors around, talk to parents and be responsible for organising events or development of other projects. They meet with the Senior Leadership team and discuss school matters from a pupil’s perspective.

Each of the School’s Hummingbird Teams (Xantus, Zafira, Rufous, Comet and Firecrown) will have two captains who are responsible for collecting team points, encouraging and motivating younger pupils in their houses. Year 6 children had to write a speech and deliver this to their entire hummingbird team (Reception – Year 6) who then voted for two children to represent their team.
