Galleywood Infant Parent Association (GIPA)

We have a very supportive, active parent/teacher association who are generous with their time and energy and contribute hugely to school life through the events and activities they organise. The funds they raise buy extra equipment for the benefit of all the children - our trim trail, pirate ship and play house are popular and used every day!

Every parent is a member of GIPA and we hope that you will be able to support activities and help in planning or running a variety of events.

GIPA Meetings

We would love to have more people involved with GIPA. Some people cannot commit as they don't have much time but there is so much else you can do. You could recieve emails to do occasional things at home, however small, it helps us and therefore your children. We welcome anyone to come and join us. You can give us as many ideas as you wish or simply sit, listen and have a drink or two!

The date for the next meeting is:

Wednesday 18th October (AGM) in the School Hall at 7.45pm

Everyone is welcome!

Please feel free to chat to any of the committee members in the playground, or contact us on the GIPA email: or speak to the school office team.

Family Film Nights 

When the nights draw in many of the children at Galleywood Infant School look forward to our Family Film Nights. Children (& siblings) return to school when it is dark, in their pyjamas armed with their favourite, most snuggly cushion. We all sit together and watch a film. Pizza and treats are provided which makes for a perfect evening! Tea/Coffee and biscuits are provided for the adults!
