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.

We have been really impressed with how all the children have settled back into learning at school, especially the reading groups first thing in the morning, well done everyone!!
The mini marathon was great fun as usual and it's good to see that our children are reasonably fit and some of them are superstars.
We have interviewed for our midday vacancies and will be welcoming five new supervisors to the school, we hope they will enjoy helping and being part of the Old Basford Team.
Congratulations go this week to Caleb, Acer, Kyhannah and Emily who have won the 100% attendance prize and have chosen a book of their choice.
Have a good weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
