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.

Thanks to Miss Eccleston for organising our Book Week.
Special thanks to our local councillors for the £5.00 per child so that everyone from Year 1-6 were able to choose a book.
The school was full of fun today with everyone in their favourite character clothes, its not everyday that you can dress up as a dragon.
Three students Luke, Georgina and Shannon have finished their training with us and we wish them all the best in the future. One PGCE student is completing his training with us this term.
Well done to Isobel in Year 6 who finished in 2nd place in the National Chess Championships for Nottinghamshire Girls under 11.
Mr Anderton will be retiring after 28 years at school. We are sad to lose such a talented and dedicated member of our staff. More details about how we will mark the occasion will follow later in the term.
Congratulations to Mrs Tee and all our community on winning the Tesco Bags of Help £12,000 Award to develop our school pond area, hopefully it will all be in place very soon.
