What is school insurance?
School insurance is a term that describes various types of insurance products designed to protect schools against potential losses and risks. Obtaining adequate insurance to cover the public liabilities arising from accidents and injuries to students, teachers, and other persons is an example of some of the necessary insurance policies recommended for schools.
Essential insurance plans for international and private schools
- Property insurance protects the school’s buildings and its contents from losses caused by fire, explosions, storms, floods, theft, accidental damage, vandalism, etc.
- Public liability insurance protects the school against legal liabilities arising from accidental bodily injury to third parties (other than employees), and damage/destruction to their property (e.g., visitors’ vehicles).
- Business interruption insurance covers financial loss caused by unforeseen events that interrupt the day-to-day operations of an organization. This includes not only loss of gross profits, but also things like employees’ salaries.
- Worker’s compensation and employer’s liability insurance covers occupational illness/accidents arising during the course of employment, and the employer’s liability for bodily injury, illness, and death arising at the workplace.
- Professional indemnity insurance protects the school from the failure of employees to carry out their duties adequately. It also covers breach of confidentiality and other negligent acts, errors, and court defense costs.
- Directors & Officers’ liability insurance protects directors, officers, trustees, and board members from legal liability costs.
- Cyber insurance protects businesses against Internet-related risks, such as cyber extortion, forensics, data security liability, etc.
On top of the above most common insurance policies that international/private schools usually procure, there is also a wide range of additional policies that schools should consider. Money insurance, machinery breakdown insurance, and crime insurance are – among other policies – also recommended.
Learn why securing school insurance through a broker is the best choice
As each school has their individual needs and risks, consulting their insurance options with a reputable broker, such as Pacific Prime, is usually a school’s best option. Pacific Prime, in particular, has experience in dealing with educational institutions insurance and follows a 4-step process to helping schools secure the most optimal solutions:
Step one – Initial needs assessment and analysis
In this step, you’ll understand and identify your insurance needs via a one-on-one meeting at your facility with us. If required, Pacific Prime will review and analyze your current insurance policies and benchmark them with the industry standards, and our solutions.
Step two – Plan consideration
After the initial assessment of the school’s needs, a broker will present you with a few plan choices, which should be transparent and easily comparable to you.
Step three – Plan review
Once you’ve chosen your insurer(s) and plan(s), it’s time for price and benefits negotiation and benchmarking. A broker will review the proposals issued by the insurers and liaise with them in order to meet your school’s needs and budget.
Step four – Plan implementation
Implementing the plan might be the hardest part of the whole process of insuring a school. Your broker will help you with the plan implementation and devise a communication strategy to all of your school’s stakeholders, such as employee and management orientation, and Q&A sessions.
