What kind of insurance cover do I need to transport children for my employer?

What kind of insurance cover do I need to transport children for my employer? If I am involved in an accident and one of the children are injured, what is available to cover me against a personal lawsuit by the parent of that injured child?

You would need class 2 business cover as a minimum, but you may also need cover for "chauffering" for "hire and reward".
