HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 c1287W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that at Fossdene Road, the Dreadnought, Calvert Road, Halstow Road, Church Street, Glenister Road, Old Woolwich Road, Creek Road, Royal Hill, and Invicta Road schools, in Greenwich, children are being refused admission; and whether the lack of school accommodation in this district will shortly be supplied by the London education authority?


There is no school named Church Street in Greenwich. Some children under five years old have been refused admission to some of the other schools referred to, but my information is that no children over five are out of school. The Board have recently approved proposals for enlarging two schools in Greenwich and for erecting one temporary building. Other enlargements are proposed under the London scheme for the reduction of classes.
