Risk Protection Arrangement (RPA) 

Local Authority Maintained schools can now join the Department for Education’s risk protection arrangement (RPA), an alternative to commercial insurance, which may save your school both time and money (school savings of £12,000 per year already reported).

For just £19 per pupil you can cover:

  • Material damage
  • Business interruption
  • Employers’ liability
  • Third party liability
  • Governors’ liability
  • Professional indemnity
  • Employee and third party dishonesty
  • Money
  • Personal accident
  • Legal expenses
  • Cultural assets



The cost for the next academic year (1 September 2021 to 31 August 2022) is £19.

Local authority maintained schools

For local authority maintained schools, the cost for the current financial year (1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022) is £19.

Many schools will have been affected by the advice against any overseas or domestic travel for children under 18. UK and overseas travel cancellations are covered by the RPA and member schools were able to quickly submit claims (on average a refund was paid within 19 working days).


  •   £19 per pupil per year
  •   £19 per place per year for special and alternative provision academies, special schools and pupil referral units.
