R.E. & Collective Worship
Every week during Collective Worship we focus on learning and discussing the Core Christian Values. During our time in Collective Worship we discuss the meanings of each of the values as well as how we can show that we are using the values in our day to day lives.
We have 12 Christian Values which underpin everything we do and everything we are at Braddock:
These support our school values:
We consider these carefully through Collective Worship and in our learning time. We also make sure that we are 'living' these values in our thoughts and actions at all times. Teaching staff and children consider these through a two year rolling program, for example, through stories, activities and reflections in Collective Worship:
Junior Worship Team 2017-2018
Our school Junior Worship Teams lead the collective worship every Wednesday morning for the whole school. Each Team takes it in turns to lead the assemblies. The children of the Junior Worship Teams are very enthusiastic about leading the collective worship assemblies and they meet every week, in their break times, to practice and prepare for the assemblies.
Junior Worship Team 2017-2018
Please say hello to our current Junior Worship Team! We are all impressed with their enthusiasm and confidence to lead collective worship on a weekly basis.
Junior Worship Team 2016-2017
We would like to say a big thank you to our Junior Worship Team - they did a fab job last year. Throughout the year this dedicated and hardworking Junior Worship Team delivered weekly Collective Worship, where they shared stories and performances with the whole school.

Christingle Service at Braddock Church
All classes prepared a piece and travelled to Braddock Church for our annual Christingle service. Lots of parents came along too! Bell ringing club performed after lots of practice!
Christmas Choir Performances
The Choir have been out and about during the Christmas season - they performed in various locations, including Lanreath Christmas fayre and at Trago Mills. They have raised money to support the school and have brought a little Christmas cheer to all of those around them at the same time!
As a school we like to sit together and celebrate Christmas dinner. As every year, we had a wonderful shared time together!
Thank you again to Reverend Sheila and to all of the Braddock School community for coming to school to share our Harvest Festival with us. Well done to all of the children (and teachers) for the lovely performances of poetry, stories and songs they put together. We hope you enjoyed it. If you have any spare time please can you sign and add comments in our collective worship book on your thoughts about our Harvest Festival.

Braddock's Easter Service at Connon Chapel.
This year we have had a beautiful Easter service at Connon Chapel. All of the classes shared creative Easter songs, poems and prayers which were created in school.
After our Easter service all of the children, parents and staff enjoyed Easter eggs and refreshment which were kindly organised by the church community.
Mrs Kemp led an inspiring Collective Worship focused on Spirituality and we learnt the definition of what Spirituality is. During Collective worship we also discussed where we feel spiritual.

Mrs Husk - October 2015
We were delighted to be joined by Mrs Husk who led our lovely Harvest assembly on 1st October 2015. We learnt about what Harvest was and why we celebrate Harvest each year. Mrs Husk showed us the many different words that can be formed from the word 'Harvest', such as, 'share', 'have' and 'heart'.
