Trips and activities – from educational visits to winter sports trips – have long been important elements of the education experience, helping to bring topics to life or simply giving pupils the chance to sample new experiences.
However, no matter how thoroughly they are organised, trips and activities inevitably expose the school, teachers and pupils to a wide range of risks and potential liabilities. As a result, it is vital to take out affordable, yet comprehensive insurance that protects all involved should the worst happen – from cancelled flights and lost possessions to medical emergencies and personal liability.
Academy travel and personal injury insurance from Marsh offers peace of mind for everyone involved - providing essential insurance coverage to protect pupils and staff at school and whilst travelling.
The unique risks presented by schools and their activities have been carefully considered, to ensure everyone involved is properly protected and to extend the benefits where possible. For example,
Marsh's Academy travel and personal injury insurance is a single, annual policy designed to cover all trips and activities. It ensures that schools can enjoy peace of mind knowing that should the worst happen, help is at hand – without the need to make separate insurance arrangements each time a trip is undertaken.
Most insured schools include an insurance charge to parents within the cost of the school trip, to ensure that the premium is gradually reimbursed to the school over the course of the school year.
