In an ideal world, children would not have to carry chairs at all. As we do, however, live in a world that is far from perfect, it is essential for teachers, parents and, of course, children to learn the correct ways for children to carry chairs.
Learning the correct ways for children to carry chairs
Like safe manual handling procedures in the ‘adult world’, the correct ways for children to carry chairs are designed to prevent children injuring themselves or others while carrying chairs. Teaching kids how to carry chairs safely in school not only prevents accidental injuries but also helps improve their:
Coordination of movement
Space does not allow a detailed explanation of the correct ways for children to carry chairs here, but you can find the full procedure at www.infomontessori.com.
Injuries at school
Lifting and carrying-related injuries are not the only risk children face at school. Many injuries at school are caused by:
Slips, trips and falls
Accidents involving defective or damaged furniture or play equipment
Schools have a duty of care towards children, teachers and other people visiting a school to minimise such risks.
Right to make a claim for compensation
If your child was hurt at school because the school was in breach of this duty of care, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim on behalf of your child.

We, a law firm with a nationwide legal team, can provide you with helpful compensation advice. With more than a decade’s worth of experience in handling school injury claims, our in-house solicitors can get you the compensation your child’s injury entitles you to fast and efficiently.
What to expect
When you call our freephone helpline, we will ask you about the:
Circumstances leading to your child’s accident
The type and extent of the personal injury your child sustained
Required to confirm your claim eligibility and assess the likelihood of a claim being successful, any information provided by you will, of course, be kept completely confidential.
What happens next
Once the advisor has confirmed your claim eligibility, you will be offered the services of a solicitor with many years’ experience in handling claims like yours to maximise your chance of success. You will be under no obligation to go ahead and claim at this point, although we recommend doing so.
