The five W'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.

We will Learn To Love & Love To Learn as we:

WELCOME All Who Come Into This School In The Name Of Jesus Himself
WORSHIP God Our Father In Prayer, In Action & In The Way We Live Our Lives
Place The WORD Of God In Our Hearts, Our Lives & Our Learning
WITNESS Christ In The Way We Live Our Lives, Form Relationships And Conduct Ourselves
Make WELFARE Of All In Our School, Community And God Given World Our Concern



Message from the Headteacher

Dear Friends

The prayer of which Bishop John has always asked us to say is

“Stay with us, Lord, On our Journey”

This is so appropriate for all of us here in St. Cuthbert’s School Community as we embark on our special journey of making the school Outstanding. The prayer is written throughout the school and is a constant reminder and prompt that all that we do in serving this community is done with the help of the Lord.

May we be generous in embracing change and always be sensitive to one another as we take the next step on our Journey together with the Lord.

God Bless,
