Academies and free schools are publicly funded and operate independently of the national curriculum. Funding comes directly from the government and is managed by an academy trust.
They’ve become increasingly popular in recent years due to amendments in legislation. This has increased from 203 in May 2010 to more than 3,300 at present.
Naturally this has meant an increase in demand for teaching staff within academies too.
As an academy, you’re directly responsible for your own budget which means you also need provisions for the future. In the unfortunate event that one of your members of staff is taken seriously ill or is involved in an accident, are you able to afford the costs of finding and employing a supply teacher for several months?
Our teacher absence insurance ensures that you won’t have any unprecedented costs to contend with, allowing you to spend your budget on the things that really matter to your academy.
