School Fighting Compensation To Hit At £3 MILLION

School Fighting

The payouts were made after councils admitted they were liable in relation to the assaults.

Almost £3million was paid in compensation to children injured in English schools either through assaults or accidents.

The biggest individual payout last year for a fight was £41,378 to a pupil at a school in Croydon, London, who was jumped on by a gang of fellow pupils.

The boy was knocked to the ground, hit his head and had two front teeth knocked out.

In Essex a total of £55,350 was paid to four students hurt in separate assaults by fellow students.

Compensation was also paid to pupils injured in accidents.

The largest settlement was by Kent County Council which paid £195,000 to a student injured when a sash window dropped on their head.

Another student hit on the head when a vase fell off a shelf received £5,000.

Other accident settlements included £61,000 paid by Bradford Council to a child who suffered hand injuries from a sanding machine.

Another £2,750 was paid to a pupil in East Sussex who suffered third degree burns in a school science lesson.

Almost £5,000 went to a child on the Isle of Wight who slipped in a rounders game after being allowed to play in the wrong shoes.
