Regular improvements were made to the school, these often came as a result of the H.M.I reports and recommendations of improvements made by them. School logs show that the school was cleaned, painted, coloured and whitewashed and chimneys swept. The playground weeded and nettles cut down.
By 1890 there were 102 children on the school roll and they were divided into 3 classes, all sharing the one school room. It was the H.M.I who recommended in their report of 1892 that there should be separate accommodation for the 'babies' so that the older children could work in peace without being disturbed.
"It would be a very good thing for the school if separate accommodation could be provided for the babies, who now form a larger class. Their 'instruction' could be much better carried out in another room."
The problem was resolved in 1894 when Lord Rosebery agreed that the 'reading room', which had not proved popular with the villagers, should become the babies room. The gallery seating was reduced in size and transferred to the new babies' room. However, the gallery was still much too large for the little ones, but it wasn't until 1902 that the H.M.I noticed that the babies had to sit all day with their feet dangling. Footrests were soon provided.
In 1908 the H.M.I reported that:
"The gallery in the babies room is a thoroughly bad one in every way"
and that it should be removed as soon as possible and kindergarten chairs and tables be put in its place. By June 1909 these were all in place as was the door opening out from the babies room into the playground (a recommendation also made by the H.M.I in 1907).
By 1901 the second class also had improvements made to their seating and in December 1901 one dozen dual desks were in place for them and in 1902 "the desks in the 1st Class Infants had backs added to theirs".
In 1904 new lavatory accommodation was mentioned and permission given for the purchase of washing utensils for the new lavatories.
