§ MR. J. GRANT LAWSON (York, N.R., Thirsk)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education in what respects, if any, the accommodation of the school at Sessay, Yorkshire, falls short of the requirements of the Education Code; and, if there is no deficiency of accommodation, for what reason the school has been threatened with loss of grant?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Mr. ACLAND, York, W.R., Rotherham)
The warning given to this school was not in respect of the premises 807 but of the instruction, which was inefficient. This inefficiency was in some measure at least due to the want of proper accommodation, especially of a separate class-room for the infants, and perhaps the two points were not kept so distinct from one another in the Report as they might have been. I have directed that this shall be explained to the Managers.
