Compensation and Settlements Paid to Teachers

Received: 27 September 2021

In the last financial year 2020/2021 please provide me with the number of settlements and the total amount paid as compensation to teachers or teaching assistants for injuries sustained at schools or outside schools. For each incident please provide me with the amount of compensation, costs and a summary of the claim.

Please clearly indicate any incidents where compensation was made to staff as a result of an injury sustained from an attack by a pupil, or in an incident when trying to restrain a violent pupil.

Note: The question relates to payments made in 2020/2021 regardless of when the incident took place. If the settlement was made by the authority's insurers it is still information "held" by your authority under the terms of the Act.
