School Governor

Talavera Infant School is based on Gun Hill in Aldershot, Hampshire.  We provide education for approximately 270 children from ages 4-7 years. We are in an exciting stage of our journey as we have agreed to a temporary expansion to help accommodate children in Reception and Year 1 (4-6 year olds), because there are more Aldershot children of this age than there are school places available. The first of these children are due to start school after half term. Many of our children come from military families, and lots have English as an additional language. By the time children leave the school their attainment is above National Average. 

We are now looking for an additional governor to join our governing body in supporting our brilliant Headteacher, leadership team, teaching and support staff. Governors have a varied and important role in helping the school run effectively, using their skills and experience to support the strategic direction of the school.
