Covid 19 Support


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Ceredigion Pupil Referral Unit. Ceredigion PRU provides a bespoke, individual educational provision for pupils aged between 8 and 16 years of age who have a range of Additional Learning Needs as well as Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties.

Mrs Carys Tisdell – Acting Headteacher

Staff at the PRU forge an exceptionally strong working relationship with the pupils in their care. All staff know their pupils well and are aware of their backgrounds and difficulties, and what motivates and worries them. They recognise the challenges that individual pupils face and succeed in creating a highly caring environment for them across all sites. This means that many pupils participate actively in activities and persevere well in their lessons.
