Schools Advisory Service

SAS insurance staff absence partner 

Schools Advisory Service (SAS) have worked exclusively in the Education Sector for 20 years and know that all Schools and Academies have different circumstances when it comes to managing staff absence. That is why our policies are bespoke and designed to fit the needs of your school, including cover for pre-existing conditions and cover for ongoing or pending absences at inception.

SAS also work with your school to proactively prevent & reduce staff absence through our extensive Well-being & Medical Benefits. This service is nurse-led by our experienced, in-house Nurse Team with over-sight from our Clinical Directors. Full details on the wellbeing package are available to download below.

CAPH members now have the option to join a Group Buy Scheme (GBS) from SAS. The GBS is designed specifically for groups of schools within the same Trust, Local Authority or Diocese, looking to purchase collaboratively. Schools pool their funds together into a single account for payment of absences on agreed terms and will receive a refund of funds not used over the year to pay for absences.

The GBS offers the below benefits:

  • Budget Certainty - 3-year fixed pricing options available, including ongoing absences
  • Profit Share - At the end of the cover year a reimbursement of surplus funds will be refunded back to the group
  • Reduced Admin – No requirement for GP contact
  • Financial Protection - No limit to the number of absences you can be reimbursed for
  • Preventative Support - Your staff can access our extensive Wellbeing & Medical Services to proactively prevent and reduce absence


"We joined Schools Advisory Service in 2008, since then we have made savings of £14,398. We have always received first class customer service from SAS"
David Fann, Headteacher, Sherwood Primary School

"In summary our whole school staff is covered for a much lower premium than we previously paid for lower cover. Claiming is easy and everyone has access to medical support too. In my personal opinion it is a winning combination."
Doreen Butler, The Orchards Middle School

"All four of our schools have signed up to SAS insurance. We have found them both cost effective and reliable. The Health screening option has also been widely used by both Teachers and Support staff. I have no hesitation in recommending SAS." 
Paul J Griffiths CEO, St Clere’s Cooperative Academy Trust
