The indie where my DS is starting in September has sent an invoice for BUPA membership and accidental sports insurance which is automatically charged for unless you opt out. Does anyone know if this is worth having as I don't want to pay for any unnecessary extras. Am not being mean by the way, just cautious!
Just consider this for a moment. Had your son gone to a state school instead, would you take out a private care plan for him? It's quite safe to say at least 90% of state school parents would not bother. And that's a mighty lot of parents!
Indie schools are notorious for all these "unnecessary" extras. My DS attends one such school which btw is noted for its strong extra curriculum activities including some dangerous pursuits. Still, I don't bother. One cannot be too careful in life.
But there again, I do live dangerously.
