A private school in Liverpool wants to have the right to smack misbehaved pupils.
The Christian Fellowship School is asking for the law which bans "corporal punishment" to be changed.
It's been illegal to smack children in state schools since 1986 and in private schools since 1998.
Head teacher, Phil Williamson, says as long as parents sign a consent form, smacking can help children learn what happens when moral rules are broken.
He also thinks parents and schools should have the right to smack children because being excluded from school doesn't always work.
Mr Williamson said schools have become more violent places and some children are being excluded at five-years-old.
