    Are you talking about the A&E charge or what are you looking to be covered?
    Hope he is feeling better!

    Would your sports clubs insurance not cover it as it was weekend?

    From my understanding of the child insurance policy. There are 2 kinds, one that solely covers school and schoo, activities, the 2nd covers 24-7.

    I am not sure what the cover is but I do think that all small medical and dental are covered.
    Don't think you will thousands but you should not be out of pocket for expenses incurred.

    You can get a claim form off the school if it's the 24/7 insurance. The claim has to been in within 30 days of the incident as far a I remember.

    You pay extra for extra curricular insurance. Standard school insurance is just for school activities. It's not a lot (about a tenner for the year iirc) but if you didn't take it out at the start of the year then you can't claim.
