CURA uses clearance levels, staff-to-student affinities, incident severity, elapsed time and accumulation of low-level concerns to create an effective referral system – informing relevant staff of safeguarding issues as they arise. 

It assures staff and pastoral carers that their concerns are being looked into and peace of mind that their obligations to those in their care are being met.

RSA logo

RSA is one of the world’s longest-serving general insurance companies. Our products help our customers to manage life’s risks and make things right when they go wrong. 

We’ve been at the heart of the insurance industry for more than 300 years. Today, we serve in excess of 9 million customers around the world. 

You may already know us through the Early Years 91ɫƵ – but you may not know that we also underwrite Morethan Insurance, as well as several UK retail partners, such as John Lewis, Nationwide and Tesco. 

We have a long history of insuring the early years sector, so we understand what you do and what protection you need. Today we insure more than 6,500 early year’s settings, from childminding businesses, nurseries and pre-schools to baby and toddler groups.  

Whatever your early years provision, it’s essential to have the right level of insurance cover in place for common and worst-case scenarios.  Reviewing insurance for your early years setting can seem like a hassle, but if you haven’t checked your policy for a couple of years, you could be missing essential cover, over-paying or under-insured - resulting in a financial gap in the event of a claim. 

Together with the Early Years 91ɫƵ, we can help you build a flexible package of standard cover and optional extras to protect the little ones in your care, your staff, your business assets, and your reputation.

The service is provided in a confidential, sympathetic and jargon-free manner, on areas of law associated with the successful running of your childcare service such as:

  • Employment and HR issues, including guidance on how to handle disciplinary matters, termination of an employee’s contract, sickness absence within the workplace, statutory rights and employers obligations
  • Health and safety matters

Legal issues are often resolved immediately following telephone advice from the Law-Call service. If this is not possible due to the nature or complexity of the case, the lawyer speaking with you can advise on the best way forward.
