The care and wellbeing of our students is of utmost importance to us. HeadStart takes precautions and measures to ensure that school programmes are run, taught and managed by qualified professionals in a responsible manner and that our facilities are built and maintained to high standards to ensure the safety of our students.
The Student Group Accident insurance provides 10,000 Baht of accident coverage per student (40,000 Baht coverage for 2017-2018 academic school year) for all students participating in school programmes. Student group accident insurance is provided by the school and there is no additional charge to parents. The accident insurance cards will not be given to the parents to use out of school hours.
The student group accident insurance is not a health insurance policy and excludes accidents occurring from dangerous sports such as martial arts, water sports, motor sports and sport competitions.
In the event that the school should organise a school programme which falls under the exclusions of the accident insurance, parents will be informed and will need to decide whether or not they would like their child to participate. If a parent approves for their child to participate, they will be required to sign a Risk Waiver and may need to pay for additional insurance for the programme.
Due to the limited coverage of the student group accident insurance, it is imperative that parents should purchase additional health and accident insurance for their child or children in case of emergencies.
Details of the student group accident insurance policy can be obtained from the school office. Our office can also provide the contact details of an insurance agent who can assist parents in selecting an appropriate private health and accident insurance package.
