113 11 1880 03 The Infants have at length been organized as a separate department. They are in fair order, but should be rather less restless. Their Reading is satisfactory except in the first Standard. Writing moderate in the first Standard and among the older Infants and Arithmetic very backward at present. I hope that another year's work will show decided improvement here also. The principal door of this room fits very badly at the bottom.

The Room does not appear to be sufficiently warmed. The Registers should be rather more carefully marked'.

483 56 1884 Summary of H.M. I's Report 1883
484   'The children between six and seven passed a fair Examination. The Reading was fair, but the words should be read in groups as forming parts of sentences, and not one at a time; the children should be trained to fix their attention on the lesson and to take interest in what they read. The writing was very fair. The counting was weak. Conversational lessons should be given in such a way as to teach the children to speak English correctly and to observe and to give the right names to things. The children knew something of Form Systematic instruction should be given in colour. In order that the Teacher may have time to study the best method of managing Infants, it is very desirable that she should be relieved of all Standard work. Children over seven are better in the upper School. The needlework was very fair. The first Standard did fairly on the whole, but the work was unequal. It should be the chief aim of the Infant Teacher to overcome the natural restlessness of young children; this may be done by a constant succession of appropriate lessons and occupations and physical exercises'.

590 73 1885 Summary of H.M. I's Report. 1884
591   'This is a well managed Infants School. The Reading was very fair in the first standard but not quite so good in the other divisions; the pictures should be explained and the children learn through conversational lessons what they are reading about. The writing was very good in the first standard; and fairly good in the preparatory class, although more finish should be aimed at; the slates should be strongly bound and carefully ruled; some were so rough that no one could write well on them. The children should be carefully taught how to hold their pencils. The knowledge of number was very fair; there was some finger reckoning, which is but little better than none. Conversational lessons had been carefully given; the children were able to answer in complete sentences. I should like to see more definite information imparted. The children took a keen interest in Drawing and other suitable Occupations and Colour had been thoughtfully taught. I am glad to hear that a room is to be provided for the babies. The condition of the school is highly creditable to the Mistress'

689 89 1886 Summary of H.M.I's Report 1885.
690   'Owing to the long illness of the Head Mistress, the attainments of the Scholars are much below what they should be. The teachers of the Boys' and Girls' schools will find many of the children sent up to them in a very unprepared state. It would have been greatly to the children's interest if the managers had provided a substitute for the Head Mistress. More than this, the health of the Assistant Teacher appears to have suffered from the overwork caused by the insufficiency of the staff. The younger children are taught in a place which is built either for a boiler or a coal-hole. I cannot recommend any Merit Grant, as I think the Management has been unsatisfactory.' The Managers should check the Registers at least once a quarter. Signed: H.L. Cook - Correspondent.

2598 319/320 1911 04 28 Copy of Report from H.M. Inspector Apr 28th 1911. Carr Lane Infants School 'This is a good little Infants School. The teaching is very earnest and effective. The ready way in which the children express themselves in the oral lessons shows that it is also kindly and encouraging. The reading & writing have been successfully taught. The Kindergarten work seen was carried out on right principles. In the Number Lessons the children handle objects and the subject is generally satisfactorily treated. It would perhaps be wise for the children to have more practice in the handling and recognition of objects in groups. The right spirit has been caught in Recitation. There is little simultaneous work and this will be further decreased. The children enjoy the games and it is pleasing to find that a good many of those children are capable of development'. The Babies appear to be nicely handled, but it is unwise to give formal lessons in Number to children of their age. Premises: The Girls and Infants Offices have been screened but steps should be taken to carry into effect the suggestions contained in the last sentence of the report of November 1908. The Infants cloakrooms are inadequate and ill ventilated. The Babies room is as a whole well suited to its purpose, but some of the space which should be available for the games is taken up by desks which are not needed. The desks used by the Babies are not appropriate and should be replaced by more suitable furniture. The whole fabric is urgently in need of attention. Some of the gutters and exterior woodwork requires attention. The surface of both playgrounds is unpaved.

3058   Copy of Report from H.M. Inspector Mr. A.L. Thornton 25th June & 2nd July 1921. Carr Lane C of E School - Infants: The Headmistress has recently retired after many years' excellent service in the school. The Assistant Teacher has charge temporarily and teaches Class I, while the Babies and Class 2 are in the hands of an experienced Supply Teacher. There are several strong features in Class I. The children make successful independent efforts in Reading. They show a sound knowledge of number, the exercises in their books are neatly printed and of a suitable kind, their power of expressing their ideas in writing is quite promising, and some of them have succeeded in learning poems independently. It would be well to show as clearly as possible in the records the development of the hardwork exercises and to encourage the childrens originality to a greater degree. The children are well trained in habits of cleanliness. The classification is good. School Staff: Winifred Alice Bartram - Head Teacher - Certificated. Maude Robertshaw - Assistant - Certificated. Benjamin Pitts Assistant Secretary.

3224 379/380 1924 04 14 Copy of the Report of H.M. Inspector - Miss F.M. Tamm. Carr Lane Infants School: The present Headmistress has had charge of this small Infants Department for 2 - years. She makes herself responsible for the younger group and has to face the usual difficulty of providing suitably for the needs both of the Babies and of those who are first beginning some formal work. She has on the whole been successful in doing this. Class 2 are making good progress with Reading and are eager to recite while the Babies have as much free activity as is possible in the circumstances. Some new pictures which have been obtained add a good deal to the brightness of their room. The first class contains a number of very young children and for most subjects falls into two well marked divisions. Some individual exercises would enable the quicker ones to go forward in Number. Reading and Recitation are successfully taught, though one would like to see the class as a whole take a more lively interest in the stories and poems. The handwork is used as an expression of stories and both individual and co-operative work are done. Singing, Games and Dancing are much enjoyed by all the children. Benjamin Pitts 8 May 1924. School Staff: Winifred Alice Bartram head Teacher - Certificated. Maude Robertshaw - Assistant - Certificated.

3535 411/412/413 1928 06 12 Copy of Report of H.M. Inspector Miss W. Biggs - Carr Lane Infants School. This is a lively little department under the Head Teacher and one Assistant teacher. The simple home like atmosphere, the childrens friendly behaviour and ready confidence in the presence of a stranger are very pleasant features. During the seven years that she has been in charge, the Head Teacher has shown skill in tackling the difficulties of a small school, and has kept abreast of modern ideas. She is herself responsible for the younger group of children. The upper section in her class are making good progress in the three R's, while the Babies enjoy suitable free activities, their afternoon rest and so on, fitting into the class happily and naturally without suffering any restriction under grouped classification. The Teacher in charge of the First Class came to the school a year and a half ago. She was trained for upper school work but has a natural gift for handling Infants, and has responded well to the Head Teacher's suggestions. Sectional and individual methods all successfully employed. The childrens attainments in the formal subjects are very creditable. Both story lessons and Physical Training are much enjoyed. The Speech Training in this class, however, needs special attention, while the handwork, though careful, might go further in the direction of free expression. The singing which is taken by the Head Teacher is sweet and tuneful. The reading material is plentiful and well chosen. School Staff. Winifred Alice Bartram, Head Teacher, Certificated. Elsie Holdsworth, Assistant, Certificated. Thos. Boyce, Director of Education - 13 June 1928.

3787 436 1933 10 05 Copy of Report by H.M.I. - Mr. C.E. Winn. Carr Lane Infants' School. This is a happy little department of two classes. Both the Head Teacher and the Assistant give the children an excellent training in personal cleanliness and self control to their efforts the children respond freely and naturally. Individual apparatus and group work play an important part in the teaching of the elements of Reading, Writing and Counting, and the work in these primary subjects of instruction reaches a good level of efficiency. At the same time, Kindergarten and other sense training activities provide the younger children with ample opportunities for employing themselves in a purposeful manner. Some of the Drawing and Handwork lessons are centred round interesting topics connected with nature talks and stories. The children learn to express their own ideas in simple form and colour with pleasing results. The acting of stories is also an attractive feature of the school, but it was noticed that while the children spoke clearly in these special periods, their enunciation was not so clear in their Reading and Singing lessons. It is suggested that care of the small flower garden in the playground should be entrusted to the children of the Infants Department.

4575 502 1953 04 30 Bradford Diocesan Religious Education Committee Inspection done by Mr Oliver Davies. - Carr Lane School - 30 April 1953. In spite of the fact that only one person was available for the Inspection of this large school, some fairly accurate general estimate of the work was possible. The limited time available allowed only a very brief visit to be paid to this interesting Dept. In opening Worship a reverent spirit was shown & the children sang their morning hymn with zest. A detailed examination would probably have revealed good results. Signed Oliver Davies.
