Governance of Dorothy Goodman School


Dorothy Goodman School is a stand-alone academy. We have five 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 ten 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. Chris White is the Chair of Governors. Chris and Tony Carr are both governors and also Members; this provides a link between the Members and the Trustees.

Our chair of Governors Christopher White 

I became a governor in 2016 and hope that the skills that I have can be of benefit to the school. I am the Chair of Governors and the chair of Finance & Staffing Committee.


I joined the Hinckley & Rugby Building Society in 1989 and was appointed to the Board as Finance Director in 1993 before becoming Chief Executive in 2007.After gaining a degree in Economics I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1981 and worked at a number of companies in the Rover Group before joining Hinckley & Rugby.  I retired from the building society in December 2018 after 29 years service.




Our Co-Vice chair of Governors Caroline Henton and Simon Love

I have been a parent governor since January 2014, my daughter is currently in the Key Stage 4 HAJC base, having previously been in the Redmoor and Richmond Units after transferring in from a mainstream school. My career has always been based around regulatory law enforcement and compliance, previously this was in Local Government and now as a senior manager within the Civil Service. I have been able to bring a number of my professional work skills to the governing body role as well as my parental experiences.



Caroline Henton, Co-Vice Chair of Governors






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