Starting School - Welcome to EYFS

Starting School in 2020-2021

At Old Basford School, we understand the importance of transition for the children when starting school.  Unfortunately, due to current circumstances at this point with Covid-19 we are not able to run transition as we normally would, however, we still wish to support the children and parents in the best way we can.


Over the next few weeks, we will be adding information, activities, stories and videos for you to watch, enjoy and take part in.  We will be keeping you all updated on a regular basis either through this page or via email.  


We do hope this gives you a flavour of what our school and Early Years is all about.


Any queries with regards to September intake, please email 



With warm wishes and kind regards,


Miss S Priddle

FS Lead & Assistant Head
