Aleksandra Aukett was traumatised and suffered multiple soft tissue injuries when “punched, pinched and kicked” by the “big for his age” reception class child in 2017 while trying to keep order.

Ms Aukett, who stepped up to the witness box at Central London County courtusing crutches, says she has been left with “life-changing” chronic pain and has not returned to work due to a fear of going back to the “school environment” in the aftermath of her ordeal.

This week, she sued the London Borough of Hillingdon, the local authority responsible for overseeing the school, claiming more should have been done to protect her in the workplace.

Today, on the second day of a planned three-day trial, the council agreed to settle the case, handing Ms Aukett £140,338 compensation, as well as paying her lawyers’ bills.
