Welcome to Old Basford School
In reading the information provided on our website, I trust the overall impression you gain will be one of a caring school, a school which genuinely strives to work in the best interests of all its children. Also, a place where parental support and interest is welcomed, because it is only with mutual co-operation and understanding of home and school that this goal can be achieved. However, as with all written communications, this website may not answer all your questions, so please do not hesitate to contact our school on any matter which requires further explanation or clarification.

Y5/6 Cross Country Champions
The place in which the children finished gave them a number of points and the fastest finishing 4 girls and 4 boys from each school had their points added together.
We are delighted to say the Boys Team finished in 2nd place with a Silver medal, just two points behind the Nottingham High School, and the Girls Team finished in 3rd place with a Bronze medal
Another fantastic achievement and our 7th City Champion Sporting Medal this academic year!

A fantastic end to a thoroughly enjoyable Autumn Term!!
Today 8 members of staff played against 12 year 6 pupils in our Xmas Staff vs Y6 football match. It was a brilliantly fought match with excellent sportsmanship - a goal fest with 5 goals in total.
Mr Ross got a hat trick and both Tia and Orlando scored for y6. It was the teachers however who had the last laugh with the match finishing at full time with the score 3-2!

A very hardworking week at school, good to see everyone trying their best and behaving well.
A special mention to Mr Allen and Mrs Mitchell who have taken on the playground supervisor's role, they are both doing a great job in looking after everyone and making sure we all have an active lunchtime.
