Our Unique Approach

 We know that there are enough tasks to be done within your school each week without having to constantly chase up quotes, or take endless calls from different staff absence insurance providers. That’s why here at Schools UK, we have worked tirelessly to develop a unique approach when quoting schools for new business or for renewals on our staff absence insurance policies.

How we achieved this is straightforward: by prioritising a simple trading style. So, while most other companies in the market will offer you a variety of options that are tactically made to appear as different companies, we promise to always be transparent and only ever offer you one brand: Schools UK. And, as we’ll never spam you with emails or unnecessary communications, you’ll have more time to focus on developing your school and less time spent sorting your absence policy.

We are confident enough in our brand, policy and partners to leave it up to schools and academies to decide whether we are the right fit for them. So, once we have sent you your quotation, we will follow up with a simple courtesy email to ensure you have received the quotation and to let you know we are available should you have any queries about our school staff absence insurance.
