Miss Harrison 


Dear Parents/Carers,


It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the new Headteacher of The Church of England School of the Resurrection. I am delighted to have been appointed by the Governing Body and asked to lead the school in the next phase of its journey of growth. 


Children are at the heart of everything I do, and their needs are central to school life and decision making. With the support of the governors and a dedicated staff team, I want to ensure ALL children are provided with a first class education and a range of experiences to inspire them to achieve their full potential and to succeed in all they choose to do in the future. 


I plan to be in the playground at the start and end of the school day, please take this as an opportunity to say  hello and introduce yourself. I will look forward to meeting you over the summer term and working in partnership with you, to build and strengthen our sense of community. 


I warmly welcome communication and support from you as parents and the community. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of school life with me, please contact the school office and we can arrange a mutually convenient time. Together, we can promote HOPE and ASPIRATION for all. 


As a parent myself, I understand the importance of family, friendships and relationships, and the part they play in education. Children’s happiness is a value that lies close to my heart, and I believe for children to be able to achieve academically, they must be emotionally ready and secure. Therefore, the WELL-BEING for all; children, staff and parents is always a key priority of mine.


The last twelve months has seen some of the most challenging times in education and society as a whole. As we move into the next phase and recovery from the pandemic, please be confident in my ability to provide stability, support and inspiration for the children and whole school community.


You can be assured, that as Headteacher, I am committed to shaping the future of education and I will do everything I can to provide opportunities for your children to flourish and be the very best they can be. 


“ ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23


Please take care, and thank you for your support, 


Best wishes,

Ashley Harrison



Welcome to Summer Term 2021

In our first half term the ethos value is Courage and in the second half, Forgiveness

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 2020-2021 our ethos focus will be:

Autumn 1: Generosity              Autumn 2: Compassion

Spring 1: Courage                       Spring 2: Forgiveness 

Summer 1: Friendship                Summer 2: Respect       

Next year our themes will be: Thankfulness, Trust, Perseverance, Justice, Service, Truthfulness.

Awards will be given to children who demonstrate the key values of the school.
