Julian is the head teacher of Sheringham Nursery School and Children’s Centre in Newham, East London and also a national leader of education, one of the co-founders of the East London Partnership Teaching School Alliance.
He was previously senior Early Years adviser for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and before that he was head teacher of Kate Greenaway Nursery School and Children’s Centre in Islington. During his school career, he has worked in primary, special and nursery schools across inner and east London.

He is also a former chair of trustees at Early Education (the British Association for Early Childhood Education). He has also written regularly for Nursery World.
Julian gained his doctorate in education from the UCL Institute of Education in 2013 for his research into how a group of Early Years practitioners developed their theories about children’s learning and their role as educators during a programme of support and professional development that he was leading.
Julian has co-written several books about early education and childcare, and has just published his first book as sole author, Successful Early Years Ofsted Inspections: thriving children, confident staff (Sage, 2016).
