Committee of the Privy Council on Education: Minutes and Reports
Set of the printed annual reports of the Committee of the Privy Council on Education published as Command Papers relating to the provision of elementary education and the training of teachers in England and Wales, and also in Scotland prior to 1872.
Until 1858 they were entitled minutes and reports, but thereafter merely reports. In addition to the report the volumes contain minutes, instructions, circulars and regulations issued by the committee, annual reports of inspectors of schools and teacher training colleges and statistical returns, including (from 1847) various lists of schools in receipt of grant aid.
At times these lists contain information on the denomination, month of inspection, annual and building grants, attendance and from 1878 accommodation of each school.
There are no indexes.
