Local education authority files on various aspects of the school health and medical services, including files on school clinics and child guidance.
The earliest surviving papers of this general series of LEA files are reports by HMIs and the Ministry's medical officers on authorities' administration of the school health service (circa 1930). Other early papers include matters arising in connection with part VII of the Education Act 1921.
Most pieces in this series, however, commence with the 1938 LEA special service staffing returns, and lead on to the rather meagre second world war records, including replies to Circular 1490, School Health Services in War-Time; various staffing arrangements and medical treatment of evacuated children.
Subsequent papers are, inter alia, those generated in connection with the Education Act 1944, the Handicapped Pupils and School Health Service Regulations 1945, and the effects of the National Health Service Act 1946 on the school health service (Circulars 29, 41 and 179 respectively).
