Were you a school lover or a hater when you were a kid? I didn’t mind school too much, it was the school dinners and doing PE straight after lunch in the hall with bits of food left behind that wasn’t appealing. School activities such as day trips or trips abroad were the highlights and little did I know then about the reliability and importance the education insurance had on schools until now.
You must have been on at least one school trip that unfortunately got cancelled last minute. Have you ever questioned the stress behind giving all the pupils’ parents their money back, not forgetting the school having to cover their own fees and losses? Fortunately, there are education insurance policies out there to cover situations like this.
As you know, our commercial insurance brokers specialise in a range of industries and sectors, including education. We have a specialist and experienced team of commercial insurance brokers who work within the schools and academies sector, and have the expert knowledge in creating bespoke education insurance policies to best suit you and your school’s requirements.
Here at Watson Laurie, we understand that all schools and academies are different, which is why we ensure that your education insurance policy is tailored to match your specific requirements. Our commercial insurance brokers will be on hand at all times to offer advice when needed.
