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.

Look at our new School Pond!!!!
Whilst we were all enjoying our summer holidays work was taking place to transform our school pond area.
This was all thanks to our fantastic school community who helped us to win a grant, through the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme, which we used to improve our school grounds.
As you can see from the photographs below, GroundCover Turf Ltd have worked tirelessly to create us an amazing new pond area which we and all our children will be able to enjoy working in. Huge thanks and well done to GroundCover Turf Ltd for completing the job.

Great to see so many parents at school over the last week, just a few who need to catch up and find out how their children have settled into the new school year. I hope everyone is PROUD that the children are working hard and making good progress and above all, they are happy.
It was lovely to see year one and year two dressing up to celebrate Katie Morag day in year two and Super Heroes day in year one, what a great way to finish the topic and half term.
A special mention to the under 10’s football team who just lost to Southwark 2-1 on Tuesday. I think we will have a brilliant team as we develop together over the season.
I hope the weather is kind and you can get outdoors over the two week holiday.
Congratulations go this week to Kasim, David, Benjamin and Thomas who have won the 100% attendance prize and have chosen a book of their choice.
Attendance for week ending 14.10.2016 is 97%
Y5/6 Athletics Team
Congratulations to the Y5/6 athletics team who today made it through to the semi finals in November of the KS2 Sports Hall Athletics Challenge!
Excellent effort from every one of you today, as well as superb sportsmanship!
We have finished in the silver or gold medal position in the finals every year for the past 8 years! and with the talented team I have, I'm sure we will continue to do well this year.
Thank you to all the parents who managed to come and support us!
A very PROUD Mrs Shaw!
