Shortlisted as School of the Year in 2016-17

Accidents and Insurance

Some parents in the past have wrongly assumed that if a child is injured at school, the council is held 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 schools, on the sports field, or during school visits, when the County Council or their staff are not in any way at fault and are, therefore, not responsible.
