Cockshutt CE Primary School & Nursery

Teaching Governors

Mandy Jones - Executive Headteacher

Term of office 1/9/2017 to 31/08/2021



I am the Executive Headteacher of Criftins C of E Primary School and Cockshutt C of E Primary School & Nursery. I consider it a privilege to be a part of such an effective, skilled Governing Body. The Governors like to challenge me and constantly provide the support the school needs to maintain its drive forward to becoming an ‘Outstanding School’ where children love to learn.​ It is encouraging to sit beside people who are fully committed to the school and the community; we benefit from the historical picture and passion Governors bring to every meeting.

Mr. Gino Ruston - Staff Governor

Term of office 26/9/2017 to 25/09/2021



"As an experienced teacher I thoroughly enjoy working at Criftins. Having worked for 3 different authorities I have gained vast experience across a wide range of  Primary Schools teaching a variety of classes. I live locally and place great emphasis on supporting the local community and our school.

As senior leader within the school I speak on behalf of staff but also represent parents as I have a child myself here in the school. The role of a governor is a huge undertaking which involves many meetings throughout the year which shape the future of our school.  

In my spare time I enjoy working on my collection of modern, classic and vintage cars. I also have a passion and talent for DIY and am currently renovating our cottage".
