Student Accident Insurance

Student Accident Insuarance


The Department does not provide personal accident insurance for students. Parents and guardians are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including any transport costs, unless the injury is caused by the negligence (carelessness) of a Department or school council employee or volunteer.


Students’ accident insurance policies are available from the private insurance market. These cover a range of medical expenses not covered by Medicare. They can be obtained by parents for individual students.


Parents of students at Kennington Primary School are reminded that Kennington Primary School does not have a whole of school policy.
