Paul Benson

Assistant Principal - Deep Support.

I have worked in a number of schools since starting my teaching career as a Physical Education Teacher. I have always enjoyed the challenge of working with children and in particular I have been driven by a need to inspire and raise the aspirations of students. I have held a number of leadership posts including Head of Department, Lead Teacher and Assistant Principal.

Since joining Outwood Grange Academy as Assistant Principal I have worked across Teaching & Learning, Curriculum and currently Deep Support. My roles include managing the day to day Behaviour and Pastoral duties within the Academy. This includes managing Learning Managers, SEND, Safeguarding and Deep Support Teams. This is a role that I really enjoy as I know the success of our team plays a pivotal part in the success and happiness of our students.
