5Ws Framework

The 5Ws Framework provides an opportunity for the school to reflect, self-evaluate and celebrate our mission as a school. The Framework supports the school in identifying strengths as well as areas to further develop and improve. 

The 5Ws (Welcome, Word, Worship, Welfare and Witness) are based on the five ministries of the Early Christian Church. 

The framework has three areas:

Catholic Life of the School (Welcome, Welfare and Witness)

Religious Education (Word)

Collective Worship  

At Saint Joseph's we are happy to welcome each child as loved by God. 

We listen to God's word and share the good news about Jesus.

Our relationships are based on the belief that everyone is special and we can all be kind and loving. We make a space in our hearts for forgiveness. 

Together, we place prayer and worship at the heart of our school day. 

As a school, we tell God's message of hope. We promise to live as a caring, sharing and loving school family.
