Schools Advisory Service (SAS)

Schools Advisory Service

Schools Advisory Service (SAS) are proud to be considered the market leader for Staff Absence Insurance in the UK, working with over 4,000 schools and offering the most flexible and unique policy available. Having worked exclusively in the Education Sector for over 20 years, we know that schools and academies have different requirements when it comes to managing staff absence. Our tailored policy can be designed to meet the individual requirements of each school.

SAS take an active approach in preventing and reducing absences at school through our extensive ‘Wellbeing Support Service’, included as standard in all policies. At SAS, we believe that prevention is better than cure, and offer our wellbeing services to staff whether they are currently absent, or still in work. 2018 SAS statistics show that over 60% of staff actively remained in work while accessing our comprehensive wellbeing services such as counselling, physiotherapy, medical operations, and chronic illness support to name a few.

New to 2019 policies, SAS are proud to offer Pupil Wellbeing Services as part of our larger, whole school wellbeing programme. These services include an award-winning speech and language therapy service, a mobile app building platform to build bespoke support apps for individuals with SEND, and our new pupil health and wellbeing programme developed with Rugby League legend Jamie Peacock MBE - Be A Champion. Be A Champion focuses on improving pupil mindset, sleep patterns, eating habits and increasing physical activity.

At SAS we take pride in our forward-thinking approach to offer both financial security for schools and comprehensive solutions to support whole school wellbeing
