COP = Co-opted – Appointed by governing body.

PAR = Parent – Parents of children at the school. Most elected by parents at the school.

HT = Headteacher

AM = Associate Member – Not governors, but can be invited to sit on one of the committees of the governing body, usually because they have specific skills. They can be given voting rights.

LEA = Governors appointed by the LA. Governing body can set eligibility criteria which appointees must meet, and it is the governing body that appoints rather than the LA.

STF = Staff – Elected by those who are paid to work at the school.
