The Slipper, Ruler And Cane

I went to school in the 1960s and into the 1970s, and teachers were able to smack you if you were naughty. Actually you didn't even need to be all that naughty, simply turning your head to look at a fellow classmate could get you into trouble. It was smacking on your legs or backside when you were younger, and later on, when you were bigger, came the slipper and the ruler. Happy days! Girls got the ruler either on the palms or knuckles (which was very nasty) and the slipper was used mostly on boys, bending over at the front of the class. I say mostly, because at the age of 12 yours truly got it, along with two boys and another girl, for disrupting the lesson (it was an argument over a stolen eraser, one of the boys took it from my friend when she wasn't looking) When I went to high school we learned about the dreaded cane, which we worried about I must say. For girls again it was used on our hands, which seems odd now seen as girls tend to have more padding at the back than boys. Besides which, hands are delicate and you had to be careful not to move your hand or you could end up getting it across your fingers. I knew of this happening and the girl's fingers where swollen afterwards so she could barely write! The worst cases meant being caned in front of the whole assembly, and it was almost always boys who were the culprits. These were not light taps either, but very hard swishes indeed given across the boy's bottom. The most I ever saw given was 4 strokes, and I couldn't imagine someone standing 6 like that. Our headmaster was a formidable man and even the toughest boys knees would knock at the prospect of incurring his wrath. However, bad behaviour was nipped in the bud, and bullies dealt with swiftly. I often wonder if in some ways we were better off.

If a serious infraction of the rules occurs the consequences need to be severe. A sound thrashing across the backside is absolutely appropriate for serious and disruptive behaviour.

u think thats harsh @ my school u get in the class than pricipals office then @ home

I included Catholic Schools but did not include all faith schools. You are right, faith schools were know for their spare the rod view. I was talking about normal secondary / grammar and junior schools run by the local authority.
I did not intend to mislead

I noted that someone has posted a story regarding caning or spanking on the bare bottom.
Unless that was an orphanage, public school of the likes of Eaton / Harrow or indeed Catholic school and maybe boarding school it was unlikely that ever happened.

There were very strict guidelines at junior, secondary and grammar schools regarding that. It did happen in the changing room of course where an ofd smack or two was given but never in the classroom and never by the school head or prefects.

I can verify that many parents did give an additional spanking or good hiding once they were aware their child had been spanked at school by me. I would take the child to the school gate after discipline to hand the child to their parent. It was obvious by the way the child walked awkwardly, the red face and the fact that the child was late and being escorted by me. I would oiverhear the comment from the Mother about what was awaiting them when they got home. Those spankings were far worse than what I had given.
It was a poignant moment watching the child walking away with the Mother as your eyes focused on the childs bottom knowing it was sore and about to be alot worse very soon.

yea my moms always spanked me if I get in trouble at school. getting paddled there sux but at home its way worst .

My name is Mrs Josephine Simmonds I am now in my early 70's and was a teacher at a primary school from 1960 for 10 years until i had my first child. I was teaching age groups from 5 - 8 years old in a mixed class and enjoyed that very much.

In those days we did had the sanction to spank children or to send a difficult child to the Headmaster (for boys) or the Deputy Headmistress (for girls). I never did that because I knew the outcome would possibly be the cane so I prefered to deal with any difficult child myself in private at the end of the day.

Parents were advised by me that I would take the child into a small room and hand spank them across my knee on the clothed bottom but if they were not happy with that then I would send the child to the school Head. As we were in loco parentis we were in fact the guardians for the children when in the school grounds. I did have a slipper / plimsoll for more difficult cases.

In contrast though I also gave many huggs and joined in their laughter, they were special days.

I saw in a posting the issue over girls being treated less severely than boys. In my class that was not the case, what you might call equal oportunities !!!!. . I would however remind anyone who might read this that when a female reaches 11 or 12 then they have other considerations on a monthly basis and from a medical standpoint it is not safe to use an implement on the bottom of a female when they are on their period. That was something I would avoid when my own daughters reached that age, they were spank free weeks even a hand spanking was not done. That may explain why teachers were reluctant to punish a female of that age on the bottom, it can lead to complications. In addition the female will be in pain anyway or at least feel dreadful if they have a heavy period so why add to the discomfort and pain. I do also take the point about the cane on the hand and fingers, not something I agreed with either.

I was at school during the 60s when C P was at the discretion of the individual teacher. I am pleased to read about the discretion you employed. My teacher, mrs gray, was an expert at self-control during class time but if you had accumulated sufficient demerit points during the day, you were given detention during which you had to write out lines about the severety of punishment you were going to receive. 24 was the max. you received in any one session and this measure was terrifying enough, but if you were given an assignment of 24 "plus", you knew that you were going to get the same the next afternoon. Thankfully it was always in private and you were'nt naked, you had your socks and shirt on; but the self-control exhibited during the day had totally evaporated as the tawse painted your bum red.

Josephine. I went to prep school in the mid 60s and the first two years were dominated by females. All the teachers except one were female at night our washing and getting ready for bed was under the watchful eye of matron or her assistants and are welfare was under the house masters wife or adopted oldest daughter.
All these females including the daughter could and I can bare witness to have spanked or used worse on main the first two years of being at the school. I was 7.5 when I first went and the youngest.
The slipper was the main punishment and would in most cases be administer in public and across one layer of clothing. The number of strokes one received varied between 3 and 12 although I did receive 24 when the house masters daughter doubled the number of strokes when she realised I should be caned but she didn\'t have the authority and her parents were away not returning for two weeks and thought it was wrong to make me wait so gave me the choice wait for the cane or the slipper strokes doubled I choice the slipper because I had a crush on the 21 year old
She made me bend over touch my toes and gave me 12 hard whacks across my pants and told me to report to her two days later for the 2nd dose which I did . Most of my beatings were justified although depending who caught us I sometimes owned up to things I didn\'t do to receive a spanking from a lady I was in love with . I would properly been one of you most common culprits if you had thought us Miss

lol

i think that yo gaba gaba should not of joined in the night garden or peppa pig should not eat bacon as she is a pig rastamouse meow woof ha ching chang chong aboooooooooooooooo bye

I got the cane bare *** at home school friend house park and mans house

How many strokes did you get during those episodes?

I got the slipper in class loads of times when I was at school. Some teachers were stricter than others but, you're right, it didn't take much for me to find myself at the front, touching my toes with my skirt up around my waist, having a slipper whacked across the seat of my knickers.

Knickers didn't provide much protection and teachers, particularly female teachers, didn't seem to go much easier on us either. You're right that, looking back, it was a bit sexist but, at the time, we didn't think about it and I certainly can't remember any girl complaining that it was unfair. In the grand scheme of things, perhaps it made up for those schools where boys were caned but girls were totally exempt from CP and often let off completely no matter what they did. As an aside, I've noticed that men are far more likely to object to girls being subject to CP and to claim it was worse for us than women are. Do you have any idea why that might be? Could it be that, by being subject to it, girls are able to prove themselves equal to boys in that respect?

How many cane-strokes per session did your receive?

At my school, most canings and slipperings were 3 or 4 strokes. My mother usually gave me 3 or 4 at home too.

Thanks for your answer.

I am a girl and i it on y bottom and my parents give me it bare bottom at home. My dreaded implement is the cane or paddle

I like your story. I also had many canings.

My Q. is the same as S/girl75's.

Nice story, but I'm a bit confused. How is it possible that someone aged between 26 and 30 went to school in the '60s and '70s ? Me and my math teachers had our disagreements, but still ...

yes your right this fibber should fetch the slipper and bend over now!

Yes to both morgan76 and aaad exactly the same I was thrashed very hard by mum usually with the cane always bare often had to ***** naked and until I went to boarding school at 11 any slipperings or canings i got at junior school were rewarded with another tanning at home. I did once 'lose' the note from school saying that i had been punished but some days later was found out and then it was 50 times worse. So I never did that again Indeed I would say that a good hidng certainly made you think twice about doing the same transgression again. Sure I still did other things to earn a sore bum but not often a repeat of something that had got me one before.

I grew up in the 70s and at Infant/ Junior school from age 5-11,teachers at our school used the slipper and strap as well as there hands,alot of the punishment was in front of the class and was mostly otk or bent over the desk,also it was not uncommon for the teacher to spank bare bottoms in class

From 3 years old I got the cane whip strap belt 30 wacks bare *** at 3 years old

Would love to hear more! I love hearing true accounts of school CP Email me at goodyukuk@yahoo.co.uk I also run a yahoo group on cp reminiscences and have just started a website on the same (with clips from mainstream movies)

In my mind there is no question that we were better off then, having problems nipped in the bud, and being taught that improper behavior had adverse consequences - so much better to learn that lesson earlier rather than later in life.

i got it from both my parents always on the bare bottom . mom used a number different instruments wooden spoon ,hairbrush , fly swatter.willow switch ,slipper ,paddle ,belt. with mom it was'nt that bad you spanked just enough to make think about what you done . father was always the belt and always very hard when he told you to get ready you had better move. i remember once i was 17 and skipped school little did i know that my father was home on vaction that day and that the school called the house to inquire why i was not in school. i came home at the normal time with my buddy in tow we cut together when i was asked how school was that day i lied and said fine and my father asked if i was sure and did'nt want to tell him anything i said no and my father said that the school called and said i was'nt in school and that i should send my friend home and prepare myself i told it wait my friend would be leaving in awhile my said are you sure you want it that way i said yea and went to my room to join my friend stupid me not realizing my father was right behind got to my room he closed the door and i knew i was in deep **** he yelling remember i gave you a chance you did'nt take it made me take my pants and underwear and beat my *** good with the belt right in front of my freind

Life at my grammar school was a constant round of punishments: caning and tawsing. The prefects were in charge of discipline, and we got caned even for what would be today considered minor things like having an untidy uniform (tie croucked, socks down, etc) Your name was read out at roll call in morning of afternoon, and you had to report to the prefects' common room at teatime. You dressed in pe shorts, though occasionally you have to drop your shorts to receive the strokes. We just took it all as a matter of course, and bore no resentment.

i too was sometimes spanked on the bare bottom but never had to ***** naked for it. it would be done in the bedroom by my mother for serious offences. i would have been sent up stairs to wait and then she would come in, the door was never shut but at least it provided some privicy. she would say take down your pants as she sat on the bed. i never pulled them down straight the way so would be assisted. the last time i was 12 nearly 13 so a little bit shy, although she had seen me naked many times before. she would undo my trousers and pull them down to my knees, then she put her fingers in the waistband of my underpants and pull them down to my knees also. i would then be laid over her knees with my back arched and my bottom sticking up. she always took her time i n the spanking , it seemed to last ages. the first smack would land and then she would wait a few seconds for it to sink in, just the same as my old headmaster with his cane. i would get about 5 or 6 and my bottom was very sore and a burning sensation afterwards and would last into the evening...

i to was in school in the 1970s and the cane was used on boys bottoms, including mine on a number of occassions. i had to stand in the headmasters office being lectured before being told to stand on a spot that he pointed to . face the door....BEND OVER.. my blazer was lifted and i had 2 strokes of the cane. i was only 12 the first time and these stung like hell..

I got the cane at school too - we all did in those days. I think we were much bettor off for getting the cane when we did wrong or broke the rules. It was a quick punishment that was effective (for a time) and no one volunterred for a caning! As you say, it was a mighty deterrent to bad behaviour, classes were well behaved and we all could, and did, learn.



The only disadvantage is that I got a liking for a red hot bottom, and I don't get it set on fire now as often as I would like.

Hi dorothyanne, I for one, would be very grateful if you'd give more details of your school experiences!

I too was in school in the 60's but our punishments were always in the privacy of the Head's study, I dont think that I would have wished to be caned in front of the class/school ( I feel differently now!!) never got caned on the hands at school, always the bottom. I have had it over my hands a number of times as an adult usually as a precurser to a bare-bottom caning and I find it quite erotic - and very painful.

Been ages since I was punished, too expensive; t'would be nice to meet a like-minded person, even just to exchage reminiscences.

i like you was in senior school mid 60s/70s, yes you did not have to do much wrong it was come out to thr front of the class bend over you got the slipper in lower school and the cane in upper school girls got the cane across knickers boys got it across trousera. i am sorry to say i had many a visit to the heads office as well
