Workshops for Parents and Carers


The staff at Victoria Park Nursery School and Family Hub often run workshops for parents with children at the school.  Click below for details of the workshops and upcoming dates.


We work with a consultant called Penny Tripp who provides short courses in positive behaviour management for parents.  Penny worked in West Berkshire schools for many years, and has some excellent hints and tips to help you manage those difficult times with your 2 and 3 year olds.

We are awaiting confirmation of the next course dates – please contact the office if you’d like to register your interest

This short workshop will give you some hints about how to give your child a really good start in terms of developing the skills they need to be a reader.  Mrs Griffiths runs this course, alongside our school librarian, Shelagh Gale.  The next workshops will be on 7 March 2018 at 9am and 12.50pm – meet outside the school office to walk over to Newbury library.



Mrs Pinnell runs this workshop which is about 1 hour long.  She will talk about the things that it’s really helpful to work on at home to give your child the right skills to be ready for school.
