NAHT Wellness and Protect

Exclusive whole school well-being, leadership support and staff absence protection for NAHT members

“Everyone knows that on a good day, teaching is one of the most rewarding professions you can choose. For many school leaders, though, the enormous privilege of helping young people learn and grow can be outweighed by the pressure and workload of the profession they’ve chosen. It is the job of professional associations like NAHT to try to make life better for our members. We do this by working at a government level, to influence policy-making for the better, but we can also offer help of our own. That is where ‘Wellness and Protect’ comes in.” – Paul Whiteman, NAHT General Secretary

“Staff Absence Insurance…it’s a mind field! With a changing of staff in our school I had no idea at all where to start with making a new claim and progressing an on-going claim. After a quick phone call and I had my account managers name and more importantly an email from her putting my mind at ease. Value for money doesn’t always come in the form of pounds and pence, sometimes knowing you are dealing with a professional, attentive and caring company is what matters. NAHT have took the time and effort to ensure I feel more confident dealing with absences. 10/10 for customer service.” – Feedback from NAHT Wellness and Protect client in Gateshead

“Our school has been part of NAHT Wellness and Protect for the past year. We have enjoyed great service from the team with excellent customer care, dealing with any queries quickly and efficiently and helping me with any areas I have not fully understand. A very patient team!
That being said, the website is easy to use to update staffing and claims with clear instructions on the information required to log a claim.
Several staff have accessed the Health and Wellbeing services and have been very impressed with professional level of the services they have accessed.
Finally, we saved nearly £2000 on the nearest alternative quote we received from alternative providers!” – Feedback from NAHT Wellness and Protect client in Nottingham
