8. Insurance coverage
The insurance coverage for children at the German School Abuja (DSA), which includes the nursery school and preschool, is regulated as follows:
A group accident insurance has been concluded for accidents at the German school Abuja. This insurance covers all personal injury and property damage resultmg from a breach of the duty of supervision or gross negligence on the part of staff or the Institution of the school itself.
This accident insurance does not cover any personal injury or damage to property which is attributable to the general risk of life which for example is covered by the municipal accident insurance in Germany.
As a result, mjuries to children during their stay at school and which are attributable to the general risk of life are not to be accounted for by the accident insurance of the school body, but by the individual health insurance. In this case, the parents are charged by the treating physician / hospital and then submit the invoice to their private health insurance Company for reimbursement.
If the health insurance requires proof that there is no further insurance from the school, this certificate can be issued.
Claims for damages shall be addressed to Julius Berger Nigeria PLC. Such a claim must include a detailed description of the accident itself and a clarifying justification of the nature and extent of the infnngement of supervision or gross negligence of the school. The recognition of the claim is the responsibility of the Insurance Company.
Notice to withdraw a child should be given no later than 15th of any month preceding the intended month of departure, e.g. a child wishing to leave 31st March must give notice by 15th February and will be charged up to end of March. Notice must be given by a parent or guardian.
