Old Basford School


Information for Prospective Parents


Due to current restrictions around Covid-19, we are unable to provide prospective parent tours around our school and Foundation Stage Setting.  

In order for prospective parents to get a flavour of what Old Basford is all about, we have set up this page with important information, messages and some virtual tours and videos.  

Message from Headteacher - Mrs Shaw 

A very warm welcome to any prospective parents looking for their child to join Old Basford School from September 2021.


It is such a shame that due to the current national COVID 19 situation we are no longer able to offer face to face tours of our school. I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to meet new parents and show them all around our wonderful school, allowing them to get a flavour of what is it like to be a part of our OBS Family!


We are a 480 place school, with 2 classes in every year group and also have a nursery provision available from the term after a child turns 3 years old.


At the end of this Second National Lockdown (hopefully early December) I am once again happy to give parents a tour of school, however this will have to be outside of school hours (after 3:45pm) when pupils and parents are off of the school site. 


Please also feel free to explore this school website by looking under 'Children' on our homepage, then clicking on 'class pages', by looking under 'News & Events' on our homepage, then click on latest news and HT Newsletters; and anything else you see that may interest you - including our wrap around care provision, both before and after school.


Until then, please see all of the videos below that give you a fantastic insight in to our provision for the children's first year of school here with us at OBS
