A Tauranga mother has been sentenced to 240 hours' community work for assaulting her daughter with a jandal.

The 28-year-old was given name suppression by Judge Louis Bidois at her sentencing in Tauranga District Court yesterday, SunLive news website reported.

She last month pleaded guilty to four counts of assault on a child.

She was found to have assaulted her four children, all aged under 12, with some of the assaults involving a jandal and folded belt.

Judge Bidois said her behaviour was irresponsible and disgraceful.

He ordered the woman to do a parenting course and put her under 12 months' intensive supervision, SunLive said.
