Section 48 – Diocese of Leeds. Religious Education
The Leeds Diocesan Framework and Schedule for Section 48 Inspections is firmly based on the National Guidelines produced by the Roman Catholic National Board of RE Inspectors and Advisers (NBRIA) and approved by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. The purpose of inspection is to assist the school in its continuing work of self-evaluation through the identification of particular strengths, of areas requiring further improvement, and of progress made since the last inspection. The arrangements for the Section 48 Inspections (Education Act 2005) enable the Church to assess systematically the work of Catholic schools. They also provide an opportunity to support, challenge, evaluate and promote this vital work in the mission of the Church.
