SAS – The chosen provider of over 4,000 schools nationwide




Schools Advisory Service are proud to be considered the market leader for staff absence insurance in the UK. We are continually striving to make a difference in education by shaping the market and setting the standards for all to follow; offering the most flexible and unique cover to give schools the best value policy available.

In 2018/19 SAS paid 93% of all reported claims, totalling over £60 million. Claims are updated via our user-friendly customer portal and processed by our experienced, in-house claims department. With our AA+ rated underwriter, all valid claims are guaranteed to be paid within 30 days.

SAS policy holders are paired with their own expert Account Manager to assist with queries, claims and help access wellbeing services on behalf of the school. Cover can include pre-existing conditions and pre-planned operations, as well as ongoing absences or maternities at the start of new policies.

At SAS we are committed to helping schools prevent and reduce absence, as well as providing budget protection. All SAS policies include Wellbeing services for insured staff as well as Pupil Wellbeing services, designed to meet the new Ofsted criteria.
