Schools are responsible for ensuring that insurance policies (Employer's Liability, Public Liability, Property, and Motor) are in place, either by buying into this agreement or by arranging cover independently. The cover purchased must be at least equivalent to specifications set out by the insurance team. Please seek advice if you are not buying into this agreement.
Please note - all schools not purchasing insurances through this agreement are required to demonstrate that they have independently purchased adequate cover for all the (applicable) policies. Failure to provide the relevant documents within the stated timescales will result in the Council purchasing insurance on the school's behalf and the school being charged accordingly.
NB. The Cheshire East Corporate Insurance Team does not arrange insurance cover for schools that have converted to Academy Status
If you require details of the sums insured and claims history for your school to allow you to make your own arrangements, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Schools should note that any insurance claims relating to incidents prior to conversion date will be dealt with by the Insurance Team and schools are therefore required to retain all relevant records to support the claims process
