Jamie Griffin suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain when he fell a distance of around five feet from a climbing frame onto the concrete floor of the playground at Burton End Primary School in November 2009, Haverhill Weekly News reports.
As a result of this incident the child - who is now ten-years-old - could not return to school for a period of ten weeks and was also temporarily blinded.
His mother Debbie Griffin subsequently took legal action against Suffolk County Council - a body with more than 24,000 employees - and Jamie has now been granted a four-figure damages sum that will be kept in a trust fund until he is 18.
"I don't want anyone to go through that again, it was a total nightmare. I honestly thought I was going to lose my son," she told the news source.
