The claim was one of just two incidents that prompted requests for compensation after incidents involving schools this year.

The incident, which took place at a school in Northampton, was investigated but rejected with no money paid out over the injury.

The second claim against the authority in 2018 took place at a school in Higham Ferrers.

A request for compensation was made after a pupil caught their finger in a closing door.

The claim is currently under investigation.

In the 2016/17 academic year there were seven claims made against the county council.

They included a claimant who was injured washing their hands, someone who tripped over a scooter, and an incident which saw a child push a locker onto a claimant.
