Church of England School of the Resurrection

Belong, Believe, Achieve

Headteacher's Welcome Message                                           


Welcome to our school website, we do our best to keep it updated and through it you will learn much about our school. If you would like to know more or to visit the school, do make arrangements through Miss Elliott at the school office. (0161 223 3163)

The Church of England School of the Resurrection is a unique school close to the city of Manchester.


Belong, Believe, Achieve - a place where everyone belongs to the Family of God; where we believe in ourselves and each other. Where we know that God has plans for us to achieve our full potential. (based on Jeremiah 29:11)

Our School Ethos

As a Church of England School, we believe that everyone is made and loved by God; our belief and trust in Jesus Christ underpins all that we are and do. Christian values are at the heart of our community and our relationships with one another. We are proud of the wonderful comments made during our SIAMS inspection during the Summer Term. Do take the time to read our report. All members of our community “experience Christianity through the life of the school as well as through the taught curriculum" in accordance with the statement of Entitlement made by the Church of England in July 2011 and the document Valuing all God's Children.

All our staff work to ensure that our children have access to a high quality education. The use of an introductory WOW experience supports us in ensuring that all children’s curiosity is awakened and that learning is exciting and memorable. Our curriculum is enhanced by our use of the creative and performing arts.


We are a school with a single class entry of 30 children and a slightly larger Nursery class. In our Nursery we are able to take 39 children. If places are available, we are able to offer a January intake. We accept children who are 3 years old. You will find a copy of our Admissions Policy in the Parents' section of our website, listed under Policies.

Occasionally, spaces become available in other year groups. Miss Elliott, in the school office will be able to advise which classes have vacancies. Application forms are available from the school office. Should parents wish, their child's name may be put on a waiting list and we will advise them should a place become available. 

We hope you find our website useful .

Our School Ethos

Our Christian Ethos underpins all that we do. 

Using Roots and Fruits, an Imaginor resource, we promote our Christian values through our collective worship and our classroom practice.

We operate a cycle of topics over two years. One ethos value is the key value for the half term but that does not mean that the others are forgotten.

In School Year 2019-2020 our ethos focuses will be:

Autumn 1: Thankfulness          Autumn 2: Trust

Spring 1: Perseverance             Spring 2: Justice

Summer 1: Service                   Summer 2: Truthfulness


Next year our themes will be: Generosity, Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect

 Each half term, every class will award two Ethos Awards to children who have demonstrated an excellent understanding of that half term's ethos.
