Instructor Insurance?

My normal day job is a chemistry teacher in a secondary school but Iím also ML, SPA and TCL qualified.
Iíve previously only ever lead groups under the LA insurance policy. Is it recomended to have your own personal insurance?

Any advice about instructors insurance for outdoor activities? (Walking, Climbing (single pitch) and biking)
Who do you use?

Cheers

In reply to Mr G: I lead climbing trips (SPA) from my school and only ever used the LEA insurance. As long as your LEA has a sizeable chunk (say £5M plus) of professional liability for its staff working on school trips, that's all you need.

If you want to run trips as a freelance for clients outside of your own school, you'll need independant insurance; the MLTA scheme is the way to go. I pay £180-odd for SPA only.

Note that you can't run trips for children, though, if they're not members of your school, unless you have an AALA licence. This annoys me no end.

£169 for sole trader, £360ish for limited company.

I'd be checking with someone as to your need to have it though
