Section 48

From the Autumn Term of 2019, Under the direction of the Bishop, Section 48 Diocese of Salford Inspections of our schools will be carried out under a revised 5Ws Framework for Self-Evaluation.  The unfolding of the 5Ws is a major theme of the Diocese of Salford’s Continuing Professional Development and Formation Programme for schools.

The purpose of the 5Ws framework is to reflect the Section 48 RE Framework from the Diocese of Salford, which focuses on the 5Ws, rooted in the roots of the early church.  They are as follows:

Welcome, Word, Witness, Welfare, Worship.  In student speak, these translate as come, talk, work, walk, pray.

Welcome [come] – come together in welcome.

Word [talk] – talk together as a word of God’s community.

Witness [work] – We look at our School mission statement and work together as a witness community.

Welfare [walk] – Walk together as a welfare community.

Worship [pray] – We pray together as a worship community.

The New inspection framework will grade the school on three areas:

  1. The outcomes, provision and leadership of the Catholic Life of the School (incorporating Welcome, Welfare, and Witness)
  2. The outcomes, provision and leadership of Religious Education (incorporating Word)
  3. The outcomes, provision and leadership of Collective Worship.
