Insurance arrangements for schools
Trafford Insurance Department currently provide insurance cover and support services to schools that buy back into the Insurance service level agreement.
We are aware of the recently approved Department for Education consultation which intends to extend Risk Protection Arrangement’s (currently in place for Academy schools only), to all local authority schools as an alternative route to insurance.
Please note that the Insurance Department have been working closely with our Insurers for some time and are confident that comparable rates will be available via the SLA. This will represent premium savings to schools that wish to continue arranging their insurance with Trafford, whilst also maintaining the wider support services of the Insurance Team
We will keep you updated as matters develop.
