Tyndale Academy is one of a very small number of educational settings in the United Kingdom that still condones corporal punishment as part of its sanctions policy. Although corporal punishment was banned in the United Kingdom schools, Tyndale Academy is able to continue the practise legally as pupils only attend on a part-time basis. As institutions whose pupils attend for less than 21 hours per week do not fall under the legal definition of a school, they are unaffected by the law preventing the use of corporal punishment.
This practice caused controversy in 2008 when the government discussed proposals in the Education and Skills Bill 2007 which would embrace Tyndale Academy as an independent educational institution and so render its discipline policy illegal.

Famous quotes containing the words punishment and/or corporal:
“No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes. On the contrary, whatever the punishment, once a specific crime has appeared for the first time, its reappearance is more likely than its initial emergence could ever have been.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
“The sense of death is most in apprehension,
And the poor beetle that we tread upon
In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
As when a giant dies.”
