At Mildenhall College Academy we have a broad, balanced and varied curriculum reflecting the needs of all learners in modern Britain. We completely revised every aspect of our curriculum during 2013 and have produced curriculum maps to outline the subjects taught; the content, skills and values taught within those subjects. All students will be exposed to the core knowledge and skills and those more proficient in each subject will be taught the enhanced knowledge and skills.
Our curriculum also indicates the assessment focus for each topic and the homeworks that may be set in line with our homework policy that is due for revision this academic year.
Our aim at Mildenhall College Academy is to ensure that young people leave school with the knowledge, skills and ambition to succeed in modern Britain and to compete in the global labour market.
Promoting British values is fundamental to achieving this and that is why we continue to ensure that the Department for Education’s five part definition of British Values is delivered not only across the curriculum but also in all of the additional opportunities students at MCA have outside of the curriculum, in the local community and globally. The core values are:
• The rule of law
• Individual liberty
• Mutual respect
• Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
