“Some parents wrongly assume that if a child is injured at school, the County Council is held to be responsible regardless of the circumstances, and that its insurance will automatically apply. This is not so, the County Council’s responsibility is strictly limited to cases where there was negligence by them or their staff. Accidents can happen in school, on the sports field, or during school visits, when the County Council or its staff are not in any way at fault and are therefore not responsible”.
The provision of personal accident insurance is considered to be the responsibility of parents. Parents who are interested in this form of insurance should speak to an insurance broker to arrange suitable cover.
Rockcliffe School is protected by Public Liability insurance organised through Cumbria County Council and through Carlisle Diocesan Board of Education.
Friends of Rockcliffe
