NATIONAL AWARD FOR OBS
Old Basford School have today been presented with our National Award for Inclusivity! The timing could not have been more perfect as this week in school all classes have had a Black History enrichment week, on top of our normal, 'diversity promoting' curriculum coverage! And to top it off beautifully … TODAY was our OBS 'SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD' day and the entire school came in RED to celebrate and acknowledge this!
The panel from the Accord Inclusivity Award stated in their presentation that:

Many congratulations to all at Old Basford School on being one of the winners of our Inclusivity Awards for 2020.
The Judges noted the way in which your RE curriculum is geared towards learning about and celebrating the different religious and cultural backgrounds in our midst. The range of off-site visits and assemblies, featuring speakers from a wide range of traditions and beliefs, as well as your participation in such events as Black History Month, is also most impressive.
Your work is taking forward the vital work of accepting difference and diversity, which in turn will help to build an open, inclusive and tolerant society in which we can all flourish in safety.
You are setting a great example to us all - well done!
