Chelford Village Website is delighted to announce that Mr Andy Brady has been appointed as Headteacher commencing in September.
Since graduating from Chester College of Higher Education in 2003, Andy has earned the reputation as an excellent classroom practitioner, firstly at Tarvin Primary School and more recently, Nether Alderley Primary School. Having joined Nether Alderley as class teacher in 2006, he was appointed Deputy Headteacher two years later and has played a key part in driving improvements, both within the school and across the primary phase of the Fallibroome Trust.
Andy's great passion is for ensuring that pupils are happy and able to access learning that intrigues, engages and inspires them to be the best that they can be, both within and beyond the classroom environment. This was acknowledged by the Cheshire Schools Awards panel in recognising Andy as 'Cheshire Inspirational Teacher of the Year 2018' .
In addition, Andy's work with leading the innovative use of technology as a tool for learning has been recognised in his accreditation as an Apple Professional Learning Specialist and he has also been appointed to serve as an external writing moderator for Cheshire East this summer, bringing expertise in ensuring that standards of pupils' writing at the end of Key Stage 2 are consistent across the county.
Andy is thrilled to be joining such a vibrant and growing community at Chelford Primary School. "From the outset, I have been incredibly impressed by everything I have seen at the School. The staff and children have made an extremely strong impression during my initial visits and it feels very much like I am joining a family – which is a credit to all who have worked so hard to make Chelford the wonderful school it is today. I am looking forward to bringing my own experiences and ideas to further enhance our offering to our families and the wider community. I'd like to thank everyone for their warm welcome so far."
Away from the school environment, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife Joanna and two young children, Oliver and William. Aside from his family, his other passion in life is for Manchester City, having held a season ticket since he was a young child.
