Accident Insurance Forms

The parents association administers the Pupil Personal Accident Insurance Scheme. Clonkeen College’s personal accident insurance cover is with AIG. 24 hour personal accident insurance cover exists for each pupil. This is paid for by parents at Registration.
The definition of 24 hour cover is: the pupil is covered 24 hours a day, for school activities, social, domestic and leisure activities (including during School holidays). To make a claim parents should collect a form from the school office or download and print this form, fill in the details, then bring the form into the school office to have it signed by the Principal.  The form and relevant receipts are then forwarded by the office to the PA representative who will check them and send them to AIG. Parents are advised to keep copies of original receipts in the event of any queries.
