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 very busy week in school, thanks to all who attended the Parents Evenings and a big thank you to all the staff who stayed for three nights and tried out the new system, more work for the staff but hopefully a great opportunity for all the parents to see all of the year group teachers at one time.
The highlight of the week was our Sinatra and Elvis Enrichment Friday Assembly with all the year groups singing two songs with extras from the guitar group and the choir. All this was brought to a fantastic end with the special appearance of Elvis himself AKA Tony Allen, great fun for everyone.
Attendance for week ending 27th November is 96.8% and Katie in F2, Kevin in KS1, Abbie Yr3/4 and Demi Yr5/6 won the 100% £25.00 draw for TOYSRUS. Congratulations to them all.
Have a good weekend and see you all on Monday.
The School Holiday dates for 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 have been confirmed. Further information can be found on the term dates page.
