Plascrug Avenue, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion , SY23 1HL

Plascrug Community Primary School is an LEA maintained School situated in the beautiful, coastal town of Aberystwyth, Ceredigion. The majority of the children who attend the school are from the town itself, however, during recent years, due to the excellent reputation the school has earned, many pupils now travel from further distances i.e. up to 40 miles radius.

There are over 400 pupils at the school ranging from 3-11 years of age.

The school community is a cosmopolitan one; approximately a quarter of our pupils are from countries overseas. In all, there are 38 countries represented and 27 differing languages spoken at the school. We rejoice in the diversity of cultures and religions reflected at the school and in the harmony and friendship which develop among our children.

At Plascrug, we aim to establish a climate within the school and classroom in which all children can develop lively, enquiring minds and learn at a pace relevant to their own experience and ability. Pupils develop competence in many skills, e.g. Numeracy, Literacy, I.C.T., and are able to use these skills with increased confidence, competence, understanding and pleasure in all areas of the curriculum as they progress through the school.

We believe in lifelong learning where we all learn from each other, share experiences and discover the excitement of acquiring new knowledge and understanding together.

Our warm and friendly team of teachers and teaching assistants support the development of each individual to their full potential, achieving the highest possible level through high expectations and hard work. They understand and meet the need of every type of special need, i.e. physical, intellectual, and emotional, according to the needs and circumstances of each child. We want all our children to experience success, celebrate achievements and feel good about themselves.

It is our hope that all our children become educated, courteous and responsible members of the community; they will have respect for themselves, for their own and others’ achievements, and for religious beliefs and cultures of other people. We strive to create an environment where children and adults see politeness as a norm, where there is a keen sense of belonging and pride in all that they do.

Plascrug School is a place where every child matters. We want to guide our pupils to the road to success where they will achieve their ambitions and fulfil their dreams.

As a Pioneer School we have been developing the new curriculum within our own school and on a national level.
