I would like to extend a warm welcome to Rainbow Forge L.E.A.D. Academy. I am proud to be the Headteacher at our calm, nurturing school.

Children can begin their journey with us from the age of two and we support our working families by providing wrap around care through breakfast and after school clubs run by our own highly trained, passionate staff.

At Rainbow we pride ourselves on having the very highest of standards of behaviour and attitudes to learning. Our children are our strength, they are proud of their school and enjoy taking an active role within the school community. On visiting Rainbow, you will see happy, friendly children who are eager to learn.

It is our aim to provide our children with the best knowledge available to ensure that they are ready for the next stage of their education.

We are developing a curriculum that ensures the children have a positive attitude to learning and develop the academy values of articulation, resilience, team work, tolerance, confidence, creativity, determination and risk taking.

Using the expertise of specialist teachers, we explore creativity through a carefully planned art, design and technology curriculum. They develop musical ability through learning based on the Kodaly technique. All children have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument and all take part in a performance each year. We support pupils’ physical development and ensure all children have the chance to either compete at an intra or inter academy level.

Governors and staff are dedicated; they work hard to encourage your child to be the best that they can be through an inclusive approach.

If you would like to visit the school, please contact the school office on 0114 2487342 where we can arrange a meeting with you at a mutually convenient time. If you are concerned about your child’s individual needs, learning or well-being, then please contact Nina Sneddon, our Deputy Head and Inclusion Leader.

I look forward to getting to know you and your child and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to provide them with the best possible start to their education and see them learn, grow and flourish at Rainbow,

Jane Loader
