Schools are obliged to have adequate insurance cover in place for Public Liability, Employers Liability and content insurances.
Educate Together advises that schools continue to renew their insurance cover with Allianz who are the leading school insurer in the country. Allianz have a long history and commitment to the education sector.
We are often asked by schools to recommend a broker to organise a school's insurance. Educate Together's own insurance is dealt with by Brady Insurance.
Frequently asked questions in relation to the Allianz policy are available on the Allianz website.
If you require legal advice for any reason it is vital that you contact the insurance company before availing of this - otherwise it might not be covered.
