A Tauranga mother who assaulted her four children aged under 12, one as young as three, has been sentenced to 12 months intensive supervision and 240 hours community work.

The 28-year-old woman, who earlier pleaded guilty to four charges of assault on a child, was granted final name suppression when she was sentenced in Tauranga District Court yesterday.
