Upcoming Class Events:
Welcome to FE!
There are currently 12 students in FE supported by 4/5 members of staff. The focus of our curriculum is to prepare for life after school in both educational and home settings and to build on the skills that have already been learnt throughout the school.
We access taster sessions each year at both Easton and Norwich City Colleges and visit a wide range of day service providers each spring term to prepare our students for leaving Harford Manor.
We practise home management skills weekly; learning how to use domestic appliances and carry out household chores, even cleaning the toilets! The students also learn about making drinks and snacks and help to cook simple meals in pairs on rota every Wednesday for the class to have for lunch, delicious!
We do PE at the UEA Sportspark every Tuesday, using the changing and showering facilities too. In autumn term we take part in cricket sessions led by coaches from the Norfolk Cricket Board. Students bring in their own money to buy lunch from a range of outlets including; supermarkets, cafes, food outlets in the city and as a special treat the pub to celebrate an 18th birthday when they happen.
Work experience in FE includes doing jobs around school, an internal work experience placement and where appropriate an external work experience placement.

Students have the opportunity to volunteer in the local community; carrying out gardening activities, litter picking, helping at Foodbank or by painting play equipment or garden furniture at nurseries and care homes.

We have created a 'Home Learning Support Sheet' for anyone in class who needs to access learning away from school at this time. On the sheet you will find activity ideas and links covering each of the school curriculum areas. In the event of a period of self-isolation for a pupil or whole class closure, your teacher will be in touch to offer additional support and learning resources.
