WREXHAM and Flintshire councils have paid out more than £85,000 in compensation to school pupils since 2008.
The Wrexham authority shelled out about £6,000 for five claims, while Flintshire paid out £79,977 for 10 completed cases in the five years to 2013, according to figures obtained by the BBC.
Yesterday Wrexham Council said only two claims between 2008 and 2013 across the region led to compensation to be paid out.
Neither incident saw a fee in excess of £3,000 being paid out.
Incidents in Wrexham schools include a primary school pupil who fell off monkey bars in a playground and broke her arm and a student on a Duke of Edinburgh expedition who had their leg scalded with boiling water.
In total there were 1,784 accidents involving children at Wrexham schools over the past five years. Last year there were 253 accidents recorded – down from the 528 accidents recorded in 2008.
In a statement Wrexham Council said: “There were only five claims made during 2008 to 2013.
“Only two of these resulted in compensation of an amount not exceeding £3,000.”
Compensation claims from schools in Flintshire in the same five year period totalled £79,977.
A council spokesman confirmed the authority paid out on four completed cases – with six cases still ongoing.
He added: “The health and safety of pupils, staff and visitors when they are on school campuses is taken very seriously and appropriate procedures are in place in all our schools.
“These procedures are regularly monitored and support and advice is available to headteachers and school governing bodies.
“All incidents are thoroughly investigated and any issues that emerge are quickly addressed.”
Information obtained by the BBC via Freedom of Information requests to all Welsh councils revealed that more than £800,000 in compensation has been paid out after children were involved in accidents at schools across Wales over the last five years.
