Financial peace of mind
Did you know that every 22 minutes a child loses a parent*? If you put this into the context of your own school, several children in every year group may go through this harrowing experience. This may result in a pupil having to move school disrupting their education at the worse possible time. In the event of a parent or fee payers subsequent death after taking out insurance we will pay termly fees direct to your school until the child concerned reaches 18 or leaves school.
A world of opportunity
We recognise that international pupils often have more complex insurance needs, their parents naturally want additional assurances that their children are properly protected throughout their stay in the UK. Our specialist international pupils' insurance policy, developed exclusively for non-UK national pupils travelling to the UK to study, will help you to make sure your pupils are protected from the moment they apply to study at your school, through their journey to the UK and until they return home.
It includes cover for personal possessions, reimbursing prepaid course fees for curtailed study, costs of bringing a relative to the UK following a medical emergency, medical costs not covered by the NHS, and legal liabilities for third party damages.
Financial peace of mind
Our pupil absence protection insurance offers financial security for your school and your fee payers, in the event that a pupil is absent for an extended period of time due to illness or injury. The cover will allow you to claim the cost of reimbursing the fees for the missed proportion of term. Valuable cover that provides peace of mind for parents and guardians during a potentially difficult time and supports your school’s value proposition.
Support when most needed
Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and in some instances can be life changing for pupils and their families. That’s why it is important to have a personal accident policy in place. We offer a range of cover options from £100,000 to £1,000,000 with dental cover included as standard, so your pupils and staff are fully protected. Whether injuries happen during sport or play, our policy covers permanent disability, death, dental injuries, burns and scars.
Mitigating loss, theft or damage
Modern technology has not only transformed day to day lives, it has also transformed the way in which schools teach and pupils learn, with schools providing tablets for lessons becoming more popular. Replacing laptops or tablets can be expensive and can interrupt learning – that’s why our pupils’ possessions policy insures against damage, loss, and theft of valuables. Bicycles, musical instruments, art equipment and other valuables are also covered which may be particularly important to boarders.
