INTO Indemnity Policy
Since 1985 it is the duty of boards of management to
indemnify teachers against any claims made against them
arising from any accident or incident that may occur
during the course of normal school activities. Claims
arising from libel, slander or assault are not covered.
The INTO Teacher Indemnity Policy indemnifies members against liability at law for damages and legal costs and expenses in respect of assault by any member and arising out of and/or directly associated with any school related activity taking place at or away from the school. In addition to excluding claims arising from libel or slander, the policy specifically excludes indemnity for any claims in connection with or arising out of sexual abuse, molestation, harassment or interference.
