Extending the Academies Risk Protection Arrangement (RPA) to Local Authority Maintained Schools (LAMS)

The Department for Education is seeking views on extending the self-insure arrangement currently operational for academy trusts (ATs) to the local authority sector.

The Department has recently contemplated extending the risk protection arrangement (RPA) of self-insurance currently operational for academy trusts (ATs) to the Local Authority Maintained Sector (LAMS), to ensure the occurrence of competitive insurance pricing within that sector.

This public consultation exercise will gauge the level of interest in the RPA LAMS provision and allow those with any feedback, views or concerns to express them. The findings will then be considered with a view to rolling out the RPA to all LAMS in England if there is a valid basis for doing so.
