Almost £58,000 in compensation was paid out to Staffordshire schoolchildren for personal injury claims in the last financial year.
There were 11 cases, ranging from trips and slips, to a girl who hurt her arm while putting away a trampoline.
The largest payout was over £10,000 to a pupil who slipped and fell on some logs.
The information was published by Staffordshire County Council after a Freedom of Information (FoI) request.
