As part of Parentkind’s membership offer Parentkind is introducing membership insurance provided by Zurich Insurance plc. It is ongoing for all Parentkind members and you will be covered from the day you join. The policy has been set up by Zurich Insurance plc so that protection is there when your PTA needs it most.

Membership to Parentkind automatically includes Public Liability insurance of up to £10 million to cover your activities including fireworks, parties and bouncy castles (please see Zurich Insurance plc policy summary for limitations and conditions). Whether you run a full calendar of events or two discos a year, as a PTA you have a duty of care to ensure that your association has adequate insurance cover in place. If a child is hurt, or the school damaged, then it is the committee which may be held financially responsible. Crucially, local authorities require all third parties using the school site to have Public Liability insurance.

With almost 60 years’ experience supporting and advising PTAs, we have worked hard to introduce a Parentkind membership insurance policy with an insurer who will cover you for most typical PTA events and activities.
