What insurance exists for out of school visits?

The Education Authority through the County Council provides insurance cover to protect your child should he / she suffer injury, damage or loss through negligent acts by staff or others engaged on County Council business.

The County Council does not provide any personal accident insurance cover, i.e. where no one is negligent or to blame, or cover for personal effects. School now has a block cover for all visits but again this only covers accidental injury in the case of negligence being proven.
