1912 ~ The Managers' Minute Books


Ruislip Church of England School
Managers’ Minute Book 1
(General Introduction - Opens in a new window)

- 1912 -

The Managers only held one meeting during 1912 primary convened to appoint a replacement teacher for Mrs Youens. As the meeting was held immediately before Easter, probably Mrs Youens left at the end of the spring term, with Miss Stanley joining after the Easter break. The reasons for Mrs Youens departure were not identified.  By 1912 both her parents were dead and she was almost certainly in her 50s.   

There was a backlog of correspondence on a variety of issues, mostly circulars from the LEA, though also notification of a new Manager, Mrs Edwards, a nomination of the Urban District Council. The Managers also noted the receipt of the annual Diocesan Inspection Report, without further comment.

Appointment of Teacher

Only two applications had been received in answer to the advert for an assistant teacher in place of Mrs Youens.  One from a married woman with two children, one 2 ½ years old, who had not been teaching for the last 6 years; & one from Miss L.E. Stanley of Yardley Hastings School, Northampton, who had good testimonials & was strongly recommended by her Rector.  She was present and after being interviewed was appointed assistant mistress at a salary according to the Middlesex County Council scale of £55 per annum rising to £65. She was paid the sum of 16/- for travelling expenses.
