Administration 69: Schools Mutual Fund COVID-19 Guidance
Posted on 29 May 2020 by Education Finance
The purpose of the Mutual Fund is to support schools by offsetting some of the additional external expenses incurred in paying for supply cover while also still paying the salary of the person who is being covered.
In order to be eligible to make a claim through the mutual fund you have to meet BOTH of these criteria:
1. You have to have a legal obligation to continue paying your current member of staff
2. You have to have a legal obligation to pay a different, external person, for supply cover. If you are simply using another member of your regular staff to cover this work, you would not be eligible to make a claim through the mutual fund.
You can then apply to the mutual fund subject to the same terms and conditions that would normally apply. If you are unsure whether you have a legal obligation to pay any member of internal or external staff, please check with HR. A contact mailbox for the HR Team is as follows: email@example.com
