Can anyone identify this children's sf novel?

1/ Published in hardback in the UK no later than 1971
2/ Features a boy in a gold spacesuit who lands in the UK and is befriended by some schoolchildren
3/ Has a scene where a schoolteacher tells her pupils she believes in UFOs
4/ Has a scene with a river boat
5/ Not by a major author

Many thanks,

Paul Murphy,
London, UK

I can also be contacted directly on paulmurphy42@yahoo.com

Thanks for trying, but no, I've read everything by NIcholas Fisk and it definitely wasn't him. Can anyone else help?

Maybe The Boy Who Discovered the Earth by Henry Gregor Felsen (pub 1955)

I can't find any plot descriptions online but the hardcover edition has a boy in a space suit on it.

No, thanks for replying but it's definitely not this book.
