Policy Documents & Forms

Policy Options

OPTIONAL:

“Optional” means that parents are invited to decide whether they want their child included in the scheme or not. This means writing to all the parents in the school and collecting individual premiums from them.

Where the scheme is being offered on an optional basis, it must be offered to the parents of all the pupils attending the school.

COMPULSORY:

“Compulsory” means the school insures all of the pupils in the school. Advantages of the compulsory scheme are:

  • Premium is Lower.
  • Less administration as no need to issue separate forms to parents for completion.
  • Any new students who join the school during the year are automatically covered under the scheme at no extra charge for whichever cover option the school chose at renewal.

Essentially, there are four ways the scheme can operate:

Option 1

  • 24 Hour Cover (Optional)

This means students are covered 24 hours a day, not just while at school, but also during social, domestic and leisure. (It should be noted the scheme does not cover bodily injury resulting from employment other than authorised school work experience programmes).

NOTE: Where a school decides to run an optional scheme (where the parents are invited to include their child or not), each parent can choose either Option 1 or Option 3 for their child. With this option, the school will be required to collect a completed form for each student.

 

Option 2

  • 24 Hour Cover (Compulsory)

Under this option, all students of the school are covered 24 hours a day, including social, domestic and leisure, as well as school activities.

It should be noted the scheme does not cover bodily injury resulting from employment other than authorised school work experience programmes.

 

Option 3

  • Cover for School Activities only (Optional)

This option covers your students while at school and while participating in any school activity taking place with the full knowledge and authority of the school, including direct travel to and from such activities.

NOTE: Where a school decides to run an optional scheme (where the parents are invited to include their child or not), each parent can choose either Option 1 or Option 3 for their child. With this option, the school will be required to collect a completed form for each student.

 

Option 4

  • Cover for School Activities Only (Compulsory)

This option is designed to cover all students of the school for school activities only, taking place with the full knowledge and authority of the school, including direct travel to and from such activities.

  • Age Limits

The age limits under the Policy are 2½ to 22 years inclusive.

Eligible Schools

The scheme is available to first and second level schools and colleges.
