Who can I insure?

All the children from the same family, from Nursery School to Terminale, as long as at least one child is a pupil at the Lycée.

Do I need to subscribe to the insurance offered by APL?

No. You are free to choose any suitable insurance. Please note that certain insurances exclude risks when your child is not in your care, custody or control and/or exclude certain activities. Check that your child is insured for his activities during school time and for any other activities with the Lycée.

Why is the APL involved?

APL has taken out this insurance in response to requests from families and the administration. The ‘purchasing group’ has the ability to negotiate substantial discounts on the standard premium purely by reason of the number of pupils involved for the benefit of those members of APL who seek cover for their children. APL is not an intermediary and does not arrange or facilitate contracts of insurance. Furthermore APL does not receive commission and makes no charge for its time and services.

Can APL advise me?

APL does not conduct a professional business of arranging insurance. It is not in a position to advise on the relative benefits of the policy nor to draw comparisons with other insurance contracts.

Why use CGEA? and who are the insurers ?

The cover is provided, through CGEA, in a combined policy document by one insurer, Tokyo Marine, which provides cover for personal injury, third party liability and statutory liability as well as a travel cover.

The insurance period will start on Back-to-school day in September 2020 and continue until midnight 31 October 2021, cover being effective from the date the completed form, with payment of premium, is received and confirmed by APL.

When will I receive my certificate?
