Word of God
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.
Our Religious Education is at the foundation of our school and it permeates through the curriculum and life of our school. We are inspired by the Word of God and we endeavour to live in the service of each other and we bear witness to the Word of God through our actions in our daily lives using the Gospel values to guide our relationships and behaviour. We celebrate the Word of God through regular worship and liturgy.
