St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

With Christ as our guide and example we celebrate the uniqueness of the individual.

Together we will try to:

Learn from Jesus,

Love like Jesus,

Live like Jesus

Welcome to Pandas Nursery

We operate in sympathy with the teachings of the Catholic Church linking with Our Lady Help of Christians Church in North Camp.


Pandas was opened in 2004 to support the provision of Catholic pre-school education in the local area but is open to both Catholic and non-Catholic children.


We offer children and their parents a service which promotes equality and values diversity.  We aim to add to the life and well-being of our local community through the provision of high quality early years education.


We are committed to providing high quality education and our provision is led by a qualified teacher, who works closely with our Reception class teacher to provide the best opportunities for children throughout the Early years Foundation Stage.  Although admission to the Reception class is by separate application, our children are ready to transition to primary school by the end of their time with us.
