Student Accident Insurance, Ambulance Cover Arrangements

Parents are reminded that the DEECD (Department of Education and Early Childhood Development) does not provide personal accident insurance or ambulance cover for students.  Parents and guardians of students who do not have student accident insurance/ambulance cover are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance/transport and any other transport costs.  These costs may be recoverable from the Department where an injury is caused by the negligence of the DEECD, a school council or their employees or volunteers.

Student accident insurance/ambulance cover policies are available from some commercial insurers and can be obtained by school councils on a whole-of-school basis, or by parents/guardians for individual students.
