PROMOTION Protecting

PROMOTION Protecting WHAT MATTERS Introducing School Fees Insurance It’s not unusual for parents to begin the search for the perfect school even before their child is born. It may take them months, even years, of careful planning, visits and research to select the right place. Many factors go into the decision-making process - academic excellence, outstanding facilities, inspiring surroundings to name but a few. A school is far more than just a place to learn; it is where a child will make friends, explore new activities, form ideas and opinions. In short, it will shape the rest of their lives and become like a second family. Once a child is really settled in a school, losing all that it provides can be truly devastating. It makes sense to protect something so precious. No one likes to think about serious illness or death. We all assume it won’t happen to us. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees when it comes to good health. According to Child Bereavement UK, unfortunately, one in 29 school age children will be bereaved of a parent. If this was to happen to you or your partner, could you continue to pay the school fees? Julie West, who had two children at Warwick Prep School, sadly lost her husband in 2012 when they were just six and five years old. She was forced to move to a small flat, in a different area, uprooting her children from familiar surroundings. Fortunately, when her children “WHY WOULD YOU NOT WANT TO PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN FROM UNDUE LOSS AND TRAUMA? JUST AS WE ARE REQUIRED TO INSURE OUR CARS, SURELY IT IS OUR ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITY TO INSURE OUR CHILDREN AGAINST LOSS TOO.” had begun their education she and her husband had taken out School Fees Insurance. This paid a pre-selected sum of money directly to the school each term following the untimely death of her husband. School was the one constant the children had left in their lives and Julie’s School Fees Insurance means their education is protected until the end of the school year in which they turn 18. “My children’s social and educational lives were maintained and sustained” says Julie. “Losing a father is traumatic and life-altering enough, but to lose a child’s friends, teachers and routine would only have significantly added to their loss.” School Fees Insurance is a unique product, that from as little as £20 a month can protect the most important years of a child’s life. It is easy and simple to take out as no medical underwriting is required. As payments go directly to the school, they will not be taxed or delayed by probate.
