The Bradford Telegraph and Argus report:

Payouts totalling £88,000 have been made by Bradford Council to settle injury claims made by teachers in the last three years.

The compensation was made to staff who were injured while working between 2010 and 2013.

Figures obtained by the Telegraph & Argus also show that just over three-quarters (74.6 per cent) of school staff currently off sick are on long-term sick leave.
