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.

A Midsummer Night's Dream
The children have been given an amazing opportunity to work alongside professional actors from the RSC and a local amateur dramatics group from Hucknall. As well as our lucky children, 25 other pupils from our P6P partnership group (Hempshill Hall, Whitemoor, Ambleside, Heathfield and Rosslyn Park) have also been selected to play the same roles over the coming week. We wish our new friends well too!
World Book Week
From Monday 25th to Friday 29th April we held our very own world book week. All our children had a fantastic time taking part in all the activities.

Well done to all of our Year 2 for working so well on their SATs tests this week. The reading test was particularly difficult and a real challenge for everyone.
Thank you to all parents who read regularly with their children. Talking about the book and understanding the story really helps when children have to complete the reading comprehension tests at this time of year.
A special mention to our 5 Shakespearian actors and Mrs Thomas who went to the London Barbican Theatre on Thursday. A very special day out for the P6P.
Congratulations to the 67 children who achieved 100% attendance and the attendance for week ending 20th May is 96%
Hope you all have a good weekend and see you all on Monday.
