Whether you work in a state-run school or college, a co-operative, an independent education provider, or a university, our education insurance experts can arrange a bespoke insurance solution for your organisation.

At Miles Smith, we have years of expertise in arranging insurance solutions and providing risk management advice to education providers. Our specialist education policy is provided by ‘A’ rated insurers and is available for most types of education providers.

For many businesses that work in the education sector, a professional risk management strategy, backed by market leading insurance products is essential. We invest our time in understanding you and your business to ensure we provide the right solutions for your insurance needs.

  • A confidential review of your current insurance arrangements to ensure you are currently not underinsured
  • A focus on safeguarding, helping you protect children and vulnerable adults
  • A bespoke risk management solution and bursary
  • Several ways to structure your premium finance

We take the time to understand the risks that your institution faces. Our insurance solutions help provide protection for your staff, pupils, buildings and contents. We’ll also look at how we can protect you from issues such as cyber breaches and crime, a very real problem in the modern digital age when you are storing large amounts of personal data. Our bespoke risk management service for education providers helps to identify risks and proactively mitigate and control these to better protect your school, college or university.

Arranging cover for just the standard products can seem like a sensible commercial decision, but it may leave you exposed. Take cyber-attacks as one example, according to the government, 81% of large businesses and 60% of small businesses suffered a cyber-attack in the last year. With the average costs for cyber-attacks running into the hundreds of thousands of pounds, it is vital that you work with an insurance broker who understands these risks and can arrange suitable protection and advise on appropriate risk management solutions to ensure your business is covered against this risk.
