Teachers won millions of pounds in compensation last year after accidents, injuries, assaults and discrimination at school, new figures show.
In one case, a teacher was awarded more than £222,000 after suffering a brain injury when a pupil hit her in the head with a bus door.
Another was handed almost £175,000 after being punched in the head by the parent of a pupil.
Others were given settlements of thousands of pounds after tripping or slipping at school, the figures show.
