A very warm WELCOME to Old Basford School


Old Basford School is full of delightful, enthusiastic, ambitious and talented learners who are surrounded and nurtured  by an incredibly committed, hard working team of staff and governors. We all believe that all children can meet their potential.


We are a high achieving, successful and aspirational school who are PROUD to serve our vibrant, inner city community.  Our creative, enriched curriculum focuses on high standards and effective teaching and learning to ensure all children develop skills, talents and individual interests, as well as developing a climate for independence, confidence, resilience, self belief and a thirst for knowledge!


As an outward looking, learning community we value the support of parents, governors, partnership schools and the Old Basford community who contribute to our success throughout each year. We challenge ourselves, our children, our governors, our extended family to create a culture where we are all role models and conscientious citizens to our school and wider community of Old Basford.


Our school motto is 'Opportunities Bring Success' we aim for all children to be able to grasp a vast array of additional opportunities during their educational journey with us, to unearth a talent, to find a personal ambition that will take them on to their next stage in education and life!

A child's time throughout Primary school should be one of the best and most memorable times of their lives and we at Old Basford strive to make sure that is the case.
