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.

OLD BASFORD'S GOT TALENT
After a very hard week of tests throughout school our children got to let their hair down this afternoon at our Summer Term Talent Show!
For an hour and a half we were thoroughly entertained with a fantastic array of acts; magicians, dancers, actors, singers, musicians, gymnasts -
WE HAD IT ALL!
Congratulations and well done to everyone that took part and the whole school for being a wonderful and supportive audience. A special 'Thank You' to Mr Allen and Mrs Mitchell (our lunchtime playground behaviour supervisors) for giving up their afternoons to judge.
Please enjoy looking through the pictures. Mrs Shaw
Playground Guardians of the Month
Playground Awards - April/May
Well the Obstacle Race Playground challenge this month turned out to be incredibly popular - even our F2 children got a turn to take part.
The sport for June was announced this morning as Long Jump!
We look forward to seeing all the children taking part in the challenge and which children have an extra spring in their step to jump the furthest!
Visit to The Lakeside Gallery
We then created our own landscapes using some of her principles and wrote descriptions to reflect the mood. A fantastic time was had by all and pupils reported that they would see colour in a different way and use this inspiration to improve their writing.

The year 3/4 gymnastic teams came 2nd and 4th in the city competition.
Year 2 had a great visit to Sherwood Pines and Year 5 and Year 3 had so much fun on their dressing up days as Greeks and Egyptians.
