Staff Absence Insurance Testimonials

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
