  • Local Authority (LA) governor - is nominated by Sutton Local Authority and appointed by the governing body.
  • Staff governor - is elected by staff at the school. To be eligible for election a member of staff must be employed by the local authority to work at the school.
  • Headteacher - the Headteacher is an ex-officio member of the governing body (by virtue of the office).

The proportion of each type of governor is set by statute and the composition of the governing body of Devonshire Primary School is defined by its pdf Instrument of Government (157 KB) .
