NUT and NASUWT teaching unions hold their annual conferences

The teacher compensation figures have been published as the NUT and NASUWT teaching unions meet for their annual conferences with further industrial action over pensions likely to be high on the agenda.

Concerns by the unions, which both took part in industrial action last year, will be raised at proposed government changes to pay and pensions along with fears over working conditions.

Two examples of NASUWT teacher compensation claims in 2011

The NASUWT's largest out-of-court personal injury settlement was for a teacher in the North West who slipped on mud, which was the result of building work, during a fire drill, and hurt her back. The woman was awarded £158,000.

Another teacher at a primary school for children with special needs was awarded £74,689 after an aggressive parent threatened her while she was alone in a classroom. She had a psychiatric breakdown, ending her 32-year teaching career.
