This is a flexible insurance scheme that is only available if your school has also bought one of our annual HR Advice and Support packages. To ensure equity within the scheme, all member schools are expected to demonstrate, if required, that they are taking all reasonable efforts to minimise staff absences by adhering to the appropriate school policies and procedures effectively.
The scheme helps schools secure income towards the cost of cover for absent staff without the exclusions associated with some private sector products.
Please note, if you wish to join the scheme mid-year, we would have to look at pre-existing absences and any maternity cases.
The scheme is flexible and adaptable to suit the needs of your school. There are two levels of cover: standard and premium, view the different packages available within the two levels [PDF].
The charges for the scheme are set out in the price tables (available to view on the Online Interactive Ordering system).
Costs of teacher and school support staff cover are based on prices per pupil on roll for primary and secondary schools. Special school costs are based on weighted pupil profile.
This is a fully comprehensive package, with no hidden costs or surcharges, from a supplier you have worked with for a number of years and can trust.
