Goodbye Miss Davies

Next week, we say goodbye to Miss Hannah Davies. Miss Davies has taught in all classes in school but has mainly worked with Year 3/4. She will be missed by children, staff and parents. I would like to thank Miss Davies for her hard work and dedication during her time at Minera School and wish her best wishes for the future.

Morning Drop Off

A number of children are arriving in school before 8:50am without any adult supervision. This is a safeguarding concern. Doors open at 8:50am, children should not be left on the yard unaccompanied before this time.

If you wish to drop off your child early, you can use Breakfast Club until 8:30am. Thank you in advance for your support with this matter.
