The Governance structure for The Delamere CE Primary Academy is as follows; Governors are all Directors and serve a term of office for four years for a maximum of two terms. Governors are selected by application and interview, and our Governing body has a mixture of different people with different key skills. However, all Governors share a common goal and purpose in that they want the very best for the pupils who attend.

Governors and staff at the school are very aware of their integrity in relation to 'The Seven Principles of Public Life'.
