Risk protection arrangement for academy trusts: membership rules

The rules governing the risk protection arrangement (RPA) for academy trusts.


These documents describe the risk protection arrangement (RPA) rules for academy trusts, which members must follow.

There is a version for church academies.

Further information about RPA is available on the ‘Academies risk protection arrangement’ guidance page.

The RPA is an alternative to commercial insurance for academy trusts. Under the RPA, the UK government covers losses instead of commercial insurance.
