Personal injury compensation of up to £5,000 is being pursued by parents after their daughter sustained a broken arm in an accident at school.
According to the Surry Comet, Hannah Staples fractured her limb in two places after being told to complete an obstacle course at Nonsuch Primary School in Stoneleigh despite the fact she only had a cast removed from the arm just days before.
The 11-year-old fell from a ladder on the course after her teacher ordered her to take part in the activity even though she had a medical note excusing her from any such physical exertion.
Susan Staples, the girl's mother, told the news source: "Hannah was told 'you are going on the course,' and while she knew she shouldn't, she did it because she didn't want to make a fuss."
This comes after Chronicle Live reported that a pupil in Newcastle had been awarded more than £6,000 in damages after an instance of slipping and tripping at school.
