agricultural districts and in unincorporated towns (not containing more than 5,000 inhabitants) in England and Wales. ResolvedThat any school now admissible, or which shall

[ocr errors]
[blocks in formation]

Provided that the RATE shall not diminish on account of any increase in the NUMBER OF SCHOLARS, until the increase is such as to make the reduced rate for the higher number balance the unreduced rate for the smaller number, e. g., 100 scholars at 58. per scholar is equal to 25l., but 101 scholars at 48. is equal to 201. 48. ; the sum of 251. is therefore to be continued until the number of scholars reaches 126, which at 48.

per

scholar is equal to 25l. 48., and so on to other quantities.

Provided that no such grant shall be claimable in respect of any year preceding the date at which the visit of one of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools shall, according to the regulations now in force, be due to the school in question.

Conditions on which foregoing assistance is offered :

1. That the income of the school in the preceding year from endowments, subscriptions, collections, and school-pence shall have amounted to fourteen shillings per scholar in schools for boys, and twelve shillings per scholar in schools for girls, without including the annual value of the teacher's house or other school-buildings.

2. That every scholar who has attended, on the average, four days per week during forty-eight weeks, or one hundred and ninety-two days in the year, shall be reckoned in the attendance by which the amount of the income and the grant are determined.

3. That one penny per week, at least, shall be paid for the education of every scholar by his or her parents, guardians, or friends, and that in no case in which the attendance or schoolpence of any scholar are reckoned, shall the charge exceed fourpence per week.

4. That the school shall be kept by a master or mistress holding a certificate of merit under the minutes of 1846, and that at least seven-tenths of the whole income, including the grant, shall be applied to the salary of the teacher and assistant teacher. That in schools containing more than one hundred and twenty children, the managers shall avail themselves of the Minutes of this Committee, to provide from the seventenths of the school income, such pupil teachers exceeding the rate of one for every forty scholars, or such assistant teachers as this Committee may require.

5. That the grant applied in aid of the stipend of the master or mistress may be accepted by this Committee, in lieu of the voluntary contributions required in fulfilment of the pecuniary conditions of the grants in augmentation of teachers' salaries, under the minutes of August and December 1846.

Subordinate Regulations. 6. That the children employed in factories and printworks, who attend school under any statute, shall be counted as scholars in ascertaining the average attendance, if they fulfil the provisions of the Act, and the school-pence paid on their behalf shall be reckoned in the income of the school.

7. That such forms of account of the income and expenditure, and such registers of school-attendance and of the payment of school-fees be kept, as this Committee may direct, in a separate minute of details.

8. That three-fourths of the scholars above seven and under nine years of age; three-fourths of those above nine and under eleven; and three-fourths of those above eleven and under thirteen respectively pass such an examination before Her Majesty's Inspector or Assistant Inspector, as shall be set forth in a separate minute of details.

Their Lordships further resolved that,—When any school, in the immediately preceding year, should have received the sum of 641. or upwards from any rate to be assessed in pursuance of the Bill for that purpose to be submitted to Parliament on the 4th of April 1853, their Lordships would sanction the apprenticeship of pupil-teachers in every such school, under the Minutes of August and December 1846, at the rate of one pupil-teacher to every twenty-five scholars.
