In schools that use [[corporal punishment]], the dean may mete out such punishment in his/her [[office]], using the [[implement]] associated with their year group (e.g. [[slipper]], [[strap]], [[paddle]], [[tawse]], [[cane]], or [[birch]]).
Some UK and US schools have or used to have a member of staff called "Dean of Discipline" whose task it was to impose all punishments in all years of the school, including spanking. This used to be the case at St Bede's R.C. College in Whalley Range, Manchester, when it was a boys-only secondary grammar school (up to 1984). "Dean of Discipline" is or was thus the same function as the present-day [[Discipline Master]] in schools in Singapore and Malaysia.
