Minera VA School News Friday 12th January 2024

Dear Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful festive break and enjoyed plenty of good times with family and friends.

This term is very short with only 5 weeks until half-term and then another 5 weeks and it is Easter so we have lots and lots to fit in!

Have a lovely weekend,

Spencer Williams - Headteacher/Pennaeth


I would like to welcome Miss Lauren Ansonia back to the staff team at Minera School. Miss Lauren will be supporting Year 1/2 in the place of Miss Pound. Unfortunately, Miss Pound left Minera School during the Christmas holidays.

Free Uniform Shop

Minera School is making efforts to tackle the cost of new school uniform and reduce the impact clothing waste has on the planet!

In school, we now have free uniform shop. Please come along and help yourself. This is a great way to replace grown out school uniform.

The shop is just outside of Mr Williams' office.
