Christ The King RC Primary School

Catholic Schools Inspection Information


Under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005, governors must make arrangements for their school to be inspected every five years. 

In addition, the Bishop may exercise his right to inspect any Catholic school or college within his diocese in order to evaluate the quality of Religious Education and the Catholic nature of the school. He does this under the code of canon law 806(1).

In the Diocese of Salford, canonical schools’ inspections are carried out by trained and licensed inspectors, the majority of whom are serving Catholic headteachers.


The Framework which governs these inspections is the Catholic Schools Inspectorate (CSI) Framework for Review, Evaluation and Celebration of our Catholic schools in England and Wales. The Framework describes and exemplifies the expectation of provision of Catholic education in our schools and colleges and provides schools with a lens through which they can review and reflect upon their educational community as an authentic and distinctive institution. The Framework enables schools to celebrate their heritage and tradition of excellence in Catholic education at the service of the Church’s mission to the world. 


Christ the King was most recently inspected in November 2023.
