1939 ~ Diocesan Inspection Report


Bishop Winnington-Ingram CE School
Transcript of London Diocesan Board of Education Inspection Reports

Visit of 20th July 1939 by the Rev. Prebendary E.H.Williams-Ashman and the Rev. C.E.Welch


            This is a very lively and well instructed Department dealing with high grade children with a large number going on to Secondary Schools.  The Clergy have worked in full co-operation with the Staff on a special scheme, (dealing thoroughly with Christian worship), which is in a fluid state and is being adapted to the needs and capabilities of the various classes.  It has raised a very good standard of interest.  The infant classes are lovingly handled and taught.  They could answer eagerly and naturally.  Their evident love for what they are doing is the best recommendation for the work done.  In the junior mixed classes a wide distribution of answering shewed classes moving well together.  The Biblical work, lessons on the Parish Church its structure and implications, the work of the Church in Foreign Missions had all gained a sure response.  At the top a well conceived Syllabus was very well known and the knowledge stood out against an excellent background.  It was felt that purposeful work had been done on which the Clergy and Teachers are to be congratulated.
