Kevin Quinn has been teaching in various schools for the last twenty years – the last ten of which have been spent in St. Andrew’s Secondary School in Glasgow. His background is firmly rooted in supporting the development of all young people – as a Pastoral Care teacher and then latterly as DHT with responsibility for Pupil Support. He has been involved extensively in developing the wellbeing strategy for his school – much of which has received national coverage.
He is also part of the new Scottish Schools Health and Wellbeing Improvement Research Network (SHIINE) advisory board. SHINE (funded by the Medical Research Council) aims to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people by using evidence to inform best practice and supporting health improvement planning through a collaboration between schools, researchers and policy makers.
