Reception Offer Day

This week was Reception Offer Day and we are delighted to be welcoming pupils into Reception for September 2024.

Letter have been sent via email. We still have a limited number of spaces for our Reception Class for September. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact the school on mailbox@minera-pri.wrexham.sch.uk / 01978 269500 with any questions or queries.

School Closure to Local Elections on 2nd May

On Thursday 2nd May, Minera School will be used a Polling Station for the Local Elections. Having risked assessed the situation and consulted with the Local Authority, Minera School will be closed to all learners on this day. Learning will switch to online learning. Staff will be providing activities via Seesaw.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused but there are no other large buildings in Minera to host a Polling Station and the school could not operate safely and securely with members of the general public on site.
