Primary school children are my favourite age group to work with! (sshhh- don't tell the grown-ups!)
I'm currently poet-in-residence at Lily Lane Primary School, Moston and Holy Trinity Primary School, Harpurhey in North Manchester.
This means I'm lucky enough to work two days a week in those primary schools helping children write poetry, take part in poetry performances and delivering teacher CPD.
Would your school like a poet-in-residence?
My freelance rates are £350 per day or £250 per day if you book me three times in one term- you can share this offer with other schools in your cluster, as long as I'm working with the same year group or the same theme. This pricing is line with other members of The National Association for Writers in Education (NAWE)
