Staffordshire accident at work compensation


If you are working in a school or college then you may expect there to be difficult students, and even certain situations in which you may be injured. However, the school should be working on your behalf to ensure that you are always protected from serious danger, and that you are not left in the company of a student who may cause you serious harm.

If you do find that you are working with a student who poses a threat to you, speak to your manager about being moved away from them or them having special attention to keep both you and them safe. If you are injured by a student then there are a few things you can and should do.

  • Tell someone in authority. You should speak to someone higher up that you about what has happened, what the situation was leading up to this issue and what you want to do about the situation. You may not have the authority to deal with the situation, and may not know exactly what you can do, but someone higher up should do.
  • Speak to the student’s parents. There is only so much your authority will let you do if a student has been violent and injured you. A student’s parents will have many more options for disciplining the student and teaching them what they can and can’t do, so they should be involved in the process.
  • Let other students know that this isn’t acceptable. If younger students see one student acting out and feel that this student has gotten away with it, they may think that they are allowed to do the same things without punishment.  Speak to the other students after the event to ensure that they understand what has happened and that this will not be tolerated.
