5Ws Framework In Saint Joseph’s
The purpose of the 5Ws framework is to reflect the new RE Framework from the Diocese of Salford, which focuses on the 5Ws, rooted in the roots of the early church. They are as follows:
In pupil speak, these translate as
Welcome (come) – We come together in welcome.
Word (talk) – We talk together as a 'word of God’ community.
Witness (work) – We look at our school mission statement and work together as a witness community.
Welfare (walk) – We walk together as a welfare community.
Worship (pray) – We pray together as a worship community.
At Saint Joseph’s we have a commitment to every member of our school family to ‘have life to the full’ and seek to respect the dignity of each individual as a child of God. We cultivate an attitude of respect for each other among our whole community. We promote responsibility within the school community and consideration for others within and beyond our community. We aim to support parents in the demands of their vocation to bring up their children so that they can experience life to the full.
