Risk management and appropriate insurance are important matters for any maintained school.
We can provide you with a full range of insurance services, advice on how to prevent claims, what to insure and what not to insure, and, if the worst happens, claims handling. All this leaves you free to get on with running your school, knowing you are covered.
Getting your risk management and insurance cover from Kirklees Professional Services brings many benefits:
The council has a dedicated team in the Insurance Section providing advice and handling claims. If required we are available on 24 hour call for emergencies.
The Insurance Section has detailed knowledge of the schools within the Kirklees Council area. You can benefit from that experience and remain in touch with insurance/risk management issues affecting other schools in Kirklees. We have access to markets not available to the framework arrangements for Academy schools. The council may not always be the lowest cost, but will provide alternatives and on many occasions will be the cheapest solution.
By maintaining insurance via the council you will retain access to risk management training offered to other schools and council departments.
