Devon County Council’s Insurance Charges
Devon County Council has been able to secure savings in its insurance premium and through effective claims management it is proposing an overall reduction in insurance costs recharged to schools. The recharge mechanism has been simplified to a flat rate per pupil for 2020/21 of £19.67. For several schools where the Diocese procures the buildings insurance the cost will be £13.03 per pupil. Although there will be significant savings for many schools there may be a very small number of schools where applying this flat rate could result in a small increase. We have decided that in these few cases it will cover these costs to ensure that no school in 2020/21 will be recharged more than it was in 2019/2020.
Our scheme provides motor insurance and engineering insurance which alternative insurance schemes may not cover. Our insurance team offers advice and claims handling and unlike some other insurers there is no excess in any of our policies for schools.
