We have worked with a range of schools and colleges for many years guiding headteachers, principals, bursars, school business managers, trustees and governors.
We work closely with you to create bespoke insurance programmes that reflect your unique risks and exposures, ensuring value for money.
Advice on a wide range of specialist insurance policies which protect the school’s assets and liabilities in addition to the personal liabilities of your directors, trustees, governors and other senior managers within the school.
Providing the best balance of quality and value to our school clients has enabled us to become one of the ISA’s Gold Suppliers.
As insurance and risk management specialists to schools in the independent sector, we have insurance professionals that work solely with independent schools. We understand the unique nature of your exposures and will work with you to design an insurance programme that accurately addresses and reflects your risks.
Schools and colleges face a wide range of risks. Some will be more obvious, such as the risk of property damage from a storm or flood. Others may be just as real but perhaps less immediately recognised, such as threats to your operations arising from computer viruses or hacking.
We aim to develop long-term relationships with clients and our experienced team are readily available to provide guidance and support throughout the year, not simply in the few months leading up to renewal.
When a loss occurs the quality of your insurance arrangements is put to the test. Our in-house claims management is a core element of our service and our specialist claims team will work closely with you to support and guide you in preparing your claim. Our negotiations with insurers are focused and proactive with the twin objectives of obtaining the best possible outcome and bringing the claim to a swift conclusion.
Public liability insurance provides cover against your legal liability to pay damages if a pupil is injured while in your care or a visitor to the school is injured on site.
Professional indemnity insurance provides cover against the school’s legal liability for a breach of professional duty
As an employer, you are required by law to have employers liability insurance. It is similar to public liability insurance but relates to damages arising out of accidental injury or job-related illness to your employees.
When you need to make a claim, we’ll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.
