Jules Reston joined The Perse Prep in September 2016. He became Director of Enrichment in September 2020. After having worked as a Year 3 form teacher and Head of Year 4, working closely with a number of teaching assistants, he decided it would be useful to investigate how efficiently these valuable human assets were being used in all the contexts around school.

“Having worked with a number of teaching assistants in a variety of contexts, I felt it would be good to listen to their perspectives on when they felt their skills were being put to best use. Every teacher and teaching assistant has their own unique way of working (something to be celebrated), but I felt it might useful for staff to have a clear set of guidelines based on academic research and in-house focus groups that help direct the utilisation of these skills more efficiently.”
