Who We Are

About Education Mutual

Education Mutual provides a proven innovative way to manage staff absence protection for Schools and Trusts.

As a member-owned DFE-recommended provider, we run solely for the benefit of members rather than shareholders.

The board of EM are School Business Leaders and Head Teachers like yourselves who want the best for their budget, together with the flexibility of a commercial provider.

Unlike commercial insurers, Education Mutual has low running costs and re-invests all surplus funds back into schools and not shareholders’ pockets.

To date Education Mutual has re-invested more than £800,000 back into the Education Sector

All Education Mutual member schools also benefit from a range of comprehensive health and wellbeing services run in conjunction with our staff absence protection to support your schools’ staff and help reduce and prevent absences.
