To ask Her Majesty's Government how many academies offer private medical provision for their staff.

The Department for Education does not hold information on private medical provision for academies staff as it does not routinely collect information about employee benefits that academies may offer to their staff.

As part of their freedoms to innovate and raise standards, academies are free to set their own pay and conditions for staff; and are not required to report these to the Department for Education or the Young People's Learning Agency. However the department is aware that some academies do provide private medical provision for their staff.
