Visit by famous children's authors

A reminder that as part of our Stanley GLOW (Great Love of Words) programme to develop reading for enjoyment in our school, two famous children’s authors will visit our school next week.

On Tuesday 28 January 2014, Ian Whybrow will be working with Nursery, Reception and Years 1 - 3 ( There will also be an opportunity for parents to ‘meet the author’ from 14.45-15.10 in the Large Studio. 

On Thursday 30 January 2014, Alan Gibbons will be working with years 4 - 6 (

We believe this will be an amazing experience for our children and are delighted that FOSP will be sponsoring part of the cost of these visits. We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £1 from each child in the school to cover the remaining costs of the visits. Please send your £1 in a sealed envelope with ‘Author Visit’ and your child’s name and class on it. 


On both days there will be a Waterstones book stall which will be open before and after school (08.30-09.30 in the Large Studio and 15.10-16.30 in the Year 2 base). Books purchased in the morning will be signed by authors during the day and returned to children. Books purchased after school may be signed in person at the book stall in Year 2 base. 

We have limited Preschool places available for September 2024, to register your interest go to About Us / Admissions * * * * * If you have a safeguarding concern about a child please contact the Single Point of Access on 020 8547 5008
