A special needs teacher has been awarded the highest compensation ever paid to a teacher for injuries caused by a pupil.

The woman, who has refused to be identified, has been awarded £95,000 after being attacked by a 13-year-old pupil at a Midlands special school.

The award was made by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

The teacher, who was represented by the National Union of Teachers, took early retirement following the attack in 1993 and has been left with permanent damage to her nervous system. She has not brought charges against her female assailant who had a history of violent behaviour.
