Rainbow Pre-School & Extended Services West Site was last inspected by Ofsted on 24th January 2017 and the East Site was last inspected on 7th December 2017 we are pleased to announce that we received a GOOD judgement for both sites. Please use the links below to read the reports.
In October 2014 Rainbow Pre-School & Extended Services changed its legal entity from an Unincorporated Charity (committee run organisation) to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation CIO. Please see our Committee page for more information relating to this change.
Unfortunately, there is no mechanism within Ofsted to convert from an unincorporated organisation to a CIO, without registering as a new Pre-School and therefore after a vigorous registration inspection, we were deemed suitable to be a Pre-School (in reality continue to be) by Ofsted and were provided with a new Registration Number EY482746.
However despite changing legal entity, operationally our day to day running continued in the same way without parents or children noticing any changes therefore as an organisation we continue to consider ourselves to be Ofsted rated GOOD, with an action plan in place to assist us to work towards an OUTSTANDING grade by our next inspection.
