Our Governors

 

 

Governance of Dorothy Goodman School

 

Dorothy Goodman School is a stand alone academy. We have three members who meet at least once each year and hold the responsibility for ensuring the finances of the Trust are in order and are spent in the best way to benefit the children and young people who attend the school.


The Trust has eleven Governors who are also known as Trustees and they are responsible for ensuring that the leadership and management of the school are effective and policies are being followed. Caroline Henton and Simon Love are Co-Chair of Governors. Jeffrey Bowes who is a governor is also a Member to provide a link between the Members and the Trustees.

I have been a parent governor since January 2014, my daughter is currently in the Key Stage 3 Redmoor Site. Being a parent governor gives the parental voice to the governing body. However, the wide range of ages and disabilities of the pupils does make this a really interesting challenge. I am a manager within Local Government and have been able to bring a number of my professional work skills and experiences to the governing body role. I’m looking forward to the challenge of taking on the role of Co Chair to help shape and develop the governing body as part of the overall development of the school.

I became a Governor in March 2015. I have had a varied career to date working in both the private and public sector in management roles. I have a background in law and regulation and with my current risk management work felt that this would be a good mix of experience and skills to act as a Governor. Having heard about the work of the school, I'm proud to be part of its Governing Body.

Simon Love, Co-Chair of Governors
