SCHOOL INSURANCE

The LFS holds/maintains 2 insurance policies and asks the family to be covered for:

  1. 1- PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE:
    This policy covers any damage caused to a third party, including students, in the event of physical  injury and/or material where the responsibility of the LFS is engaged.  It does not, in any manner, substitute the personal liability policy of the parents, which we highly encourage the Head of the family to subscribe to, in instances where the responsibility of the LFS would not be engaged (for example, a collision between two students during a scuffle would not be covered unless the LFS is clearly identified in the incident). It is generally a part of the multi-risk homeowner’s policy.

  2. 2- PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE:  
    This insurance covers, among others, some medical expenses following an accident suffered by the child at school or elsewhere. In any event, the maximum coverage of medical fees corresponds to 25,000 SGD. This insurance is offered by the school and is not an obligation.  It complements the medical insurance taken by the family.


The LFS requests that parents ensure that they are covered, for their own personal responsibility for the following:

1 – PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE:
This policy covers all damage caused by the child to a third-party or to property.  This would apply both to incidents at the school and in daily life.

2 – PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE:
This insurance covers medical expenses, not necessarily following an accident, suffered by the child at school or elsewhere. This is sometimes included in the parents' work insurance policy.

 

RE-ENROLLMENT
