    Question Poll: Dress code

    Hi folks,

    Apologies if this has already been discussed lots, but just curious for those IT bods who work in schools what the dress code is, or at least what do you normally wear?

    We have nothing formal at our school, although (as a Network Manager) I was asked to wear shirt and tie, which after 2 years has "deteriorated" to smart jeans, shirt with no tie, and trainers (my shoes fell to bits).

    I normally wear Company Branded Polo-Shirt, Work trousers, plain black trainers/steel toe caps depending on the job in hand.
    The only dress code we are given is "no jeans" by the IT management company that we work for in our school.

    I wear trousers/shorts with shirt/tie and shoes.

    I wear shorts on warmer days as the women get to wear skirts and HT said it was ok, I did say I could wear a kilt but it would be a bit impractical!

    There's a poll at the top btw, for those with devices that can see it. I think it must post the thread even before the poll is added.

    Sorry for the bewildering options, I got carried away

    Shoes, shirt, trousers. I tend to get away without a tie - every other male member of staff wears a tie. I think I get away with it thants to the different shirts I wear.

    I do get comments though when I sit in on interviews fully suited

    No suit, but shirt, tie, smart trousers, shoes here, but many times I wish we had a company Polo shirt, trousers, shoes as I've lost count on the amount of times the tie gets in the way; or trousers and shoes get dirty/damaged etc. doing installations (data cabinets, cable management etc.)

    Not sure if this would be applicable for company (supplied) uniforms???

    I wear Shirt and smart trousers just because I have been asked to.
    During summer hols, I asked if i could change that to jeans coz i am fed up with crawling under desks and various other dusty places to fix things with 'smart' clothes on .. and was told flat out, No!
    So why do teachers wear jeans then??
