But more psychological injury claims - another 491 - were denied than accepted.
The Queensland Teachers' Union warns teachers that psychological injuries are harder to prove than physical ones.
WorkCover Queensland made a further $1.38 million in payments to initially accepted claims that ended up being denied.
QTU president Kevin Bates said a significant number of the 442 accepted psychological claims had been rejected before his union helped appeal them.
Many QTU members didn't lodge WorkCover claims because so many are rejected.
"Those examples aren't one-off - those are the few that you do see," QASSP president Hilary Backus said of the psychological injury claims.
"There would be thousands of others that don't make it as far as a WorkCover claim.
"It is worth noting that across the department, the number of state school teachers who make claims for psychological conditions through WorkCover Queensland is extremely low," Department of Education, Training and Employment assistant director-general Craig Allen said.
"On average over the last three years, less than 0.5 per cent sought compensation."
