PORTMARNOCK COMMUNITY SCHOOL PARENT`S ASSOCIATION

 TWENTY-FOUR HOUR INSURANCE FOR PUPILS.

The school authorities hold insurance covering their legal liability for accidental bodily injury to students but claims made by parents in such circumstances will only be met where they are able to prove negligence on the part of the school.

These cases cause difficulties where a parent is informed, by the school or the insurers, that there was no negligence and, therefore, the claim for compensation and/or reimbursement of medical /dental expenses cannot be met.

To try and avoid this, personal accident insurance for the student has been taken out. We are pleased to inform you that personal accident insurance is inclusive in the school activities fee.

            Cover from 1st August 2014- 31st July 2015 (12 month period)

Cover is available where the insured students are covered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The scheme is arranged by Brennan Insurances.
