Pupil Insurances

Dear parents, we are delighted to be able to provide details of our newly negotiated insurance policies below.  We strongly recommend that you consider your insurance requirements carefully as no liability can be accepted for pupils’ personal possessions especially laptops, tablets, mobile phones, bicycles or cash. You are strongly advised to obtain private insurance for such items or opt-in to the School’s insurance provision arrangements. Also, the School cannot accept any responsibility for any damage caused to any vehicles/bicycles or other equipment parked or left anywhere on the School premises for any reason at any time.

Please be aware that in accordance with the Parent Contract, we do not provide refunds if your child is absent from school so we encourage you to take out pupil absence insurance to cover this eventuality.

The School has comprehensive travel insurance for arranged school trips, but naturally certain activities and items are excluded and parents must consider if additional cover is needed.

Parents should consider carefully if they need additional medical cover of any kind. For international students the NHS is now very strict about charging for medical treatment provided in the UK, even in an emergency if they consider that your child is not entitled to support as a full UK resident. See: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-overseas-visitors-hospital-charging-regulations

Please ensure that all schemes offered fully meet your personal circumstances and requirements.

Charged schemes offered are optional and can be cancelled with a term’s notice. The termly invoice will show if you are covered with the insurances you need if received in time. Please check this carefully. Contact billing@clayesmore.com for more details or information.
