A Freedom of Information requested, showed 29 pupils were awarded payments by Gloucestershire County Council between 2008 and 2013.

A council spokesman said it was working to cut inappropriate payments.

The highest payout was £18,000. One claim was for an incident that happened 10 years earlier.

The figures show £58,700 was awarded to secondary and primary students for personal injury claims in 2011/12, £41,000 in 2012/13 and £27,000 in 2010/11.

Seven pupils claimed compensation in each of these three academic years. Eight students were awarded payments totalling £30,000 in 2008/9 and 2009/10.

A county council spokesperson said: "Given that the figures cover a period when we insured around 80,000 students in Gloucestershire, the amounts involved are comparatively low.

"Despite that, we are still working hard with schools to cut both accidents and inappropriate compensation."
