The Government’s decision of 5th June makes it possible to run summer provision for children with complex needs.
There are 3 scenarios in relation to the July Provision for 2020:
- School - based Summer Education Programme (previously known as the July Provision)
This programme is organised by the school and in respect of pupils from that school. We can confirm that your Allianz Custodian School Protection Policy will provide cover in respect of the hosting of the School based Summer Education Programme at no extra cost subject to the Policy Terms and Conditions. Again, It is important that all reasonable precautions are taken to follow Government/ HSE Guidelines in limiting the spread of COVID-19.
- Home – based Summer Education Programme
The home based programme is only available where a School is not running a School based programme. In situations where the School based programme is not available to the parent/guardian, the DES will fund the employment of a tutor by the parent/guardian. As this arrangement is between the DES, parent/guardian and the tutor, schools have no involvement in the home based programme. Therefore no cover applies under you Allianz Custodian School Protection Policy in respect of the home based programme.
- HSE- led Summer Programme
This programme is organised by the HSE and is school based. Your Allianz Custodian School Protection Policy will facilitate the use of your school property by the HSE for the running of a HSE-led Summer Programme. However, it is imperative that your school are provided with an indemnity from the State Claims Agency to your Board of Management, Trustees and Patron for the use of your school facilities by the HSE. Your Allianz Custodian School Protection Policy will continue to protect your school’s legal liability as property owners.
