Personal Accident Insurance Cover
Parents and caregivers please note there is no personal injury insurance cover provided by the NSW Department of Education and Training for students in relation to school sporting activities, physical education lessons or any other school activity.
Parents and caregivers are advised to assess the level and extent of their child's involvement in the sport program offered by the school, school sport zone, area and state school sport associations when deciding whether additional insurance cover, above that provided by Medicare, is required.
Personal accident insurance cover is available through normal retail insurance outlets.
The NSW Supplementary Sporting Injury Benefits Scheme, funded by the NSW Government, provides limited cover for serious injury resulting in the permanent loss of a prescribed faculty or the use of some prescribed part of the body.
