*Indirect Costs

Absence figures are based on the CIPD Absence Management Annual Survey Report published November 2016. These are the potential savings your school could make on direct absence costs only. Indirect costs (for example replacement cover, reduced effectiveness of supply cover on student progress, overheads, supervision of replacement, team morale and impact on standards) have not been calculated but are usually estimated to be 2 to 4 times that of direct costs. Therefore, the savings above could be more than doubled.
