    Re: Dress Code

    Shirt and Tie in term time unless ive got a big job on then its the casual stuff. I tend to wear either jeans, or if lots of work on my knees or really grubby stuff I then wear my workwear pants with about 1000000000 pockets to loose tools in, I even found a Punch Down tool in them the other day that I lost months ago! Thats how big and many pockets they have.

    As for piercings, I find they seem to be a no no on male staff in schools, most i've been in don't seem to either allow or the male staff don't wear them, and thats more "standard" ones EG ears over something a bit more "trendy" EG Flesh Tunnels etc

    Re: Dress Code

    black jeans, long t-shirts or jumpers, never shirt and tie.

    Formal business wear is shirt, trousers and tie for men
    and taylored/business trousers/skirt and blouse or top designed to be worn under a suit for women.

    If you have been told to wear shirt+tie but the same standard of formal dress is not being applied to women then I would reccomend collecting some evidence and getting a union rep involved.

    Re: Dress Code

    I think having to wear shirt & tie is a bit OTT for technicians - even the police don't have to wear that now! (most police forces have black T-shirts and combat trousers).
    I'd also say wearing a tie could be a health and safety risk - moving components etc.

    I usually wore jeans and a shirt (cheapo ones from Tesco - 2 for a tenner or something similar!)

    Re: Dress Code

    Smart trousers, shoes and shirt here. No ties needed by anyone.

    the teaching staff tend to wear a variety of things. Yesterday a staff member was wearing smart trousers and top, today she's in trackies and tshirt. For the female staff it seems they can wear whatever they like. The younger NQTs tend to wear smart skirts and tops, the more"senior" female staff wear whatever they feel like. One such "senior" member likes to wear short skirts and thighhigh boots :? 8O not so good!

    The male staff (all 4 of us ) always wear shirts (+smart jumpers now its cold!) though 1 of the 2 male teachers tends to wear polo shirt + jeans (then again on Monday he was in a full suit, so who knows!).

    I've also seen the deputy head in a school-logo fleecey thing. Think they didnt take off here, perhaps staff didnt want them. Then again, there doesn't seem to be that much of a dress code for the pupils either!

    I think that as long as its not deemed inappropriate (i.e. rude tshirts or showing too much skin on the ladies' side) then its generally OK to wear what you like here. On a few odd days I've worn trainers and no-one's said anything. On training days / half terms etc. we can wear what we like (within good reason - no KISS outfits )

    After 5 months of wearing smart shirts etc. every day, it might be more noticable if one of us suddenly turned up in jeans and a tshirt. Personally, I would prefer to wear an shirt and look smart, even if the teacher's dont have to

    Re: Dress Code

    Staff dress respectably...thats about it. I wear a shirt and smart black jeans with black shoes.

    Steve used to do the whole suit thing, but after 3 weeks of dust he went the same way.

    Ties are only a formal occasion thing...I HATE having dangly things around machinery.

    Re: Dress Code

    Jumpers? you big jessies.

    I normally in smart trouser or smart black jeans plus shirt with no tie term time.

    Holidays anything goes.

    At a previous school I once wore an FCUK t-shirt with just that in big letters on the front on a non uniform day.

    Was spoken to by a deputy after numerous complaints.

    What machinery? We're IT techs not Resistant Materials teachers

    I've never encountered a situation where my tie would get stuck or caught on anything. If I do I will simply remove it I think this is just the anti-tie brigade looking for excuses

    Re: Dress Code

    We had a work-experience kid get his Asda tie caught in the rollers of a photocopier. Didn't know whether to laugh or just leave him there with his face squashed against the machine.

    Re: Dress Code

    I own several IT themed ties..heh..but no, they are an embuggerance in my view. As are dress trousers. Nasty lightweight flimsy snaggy material can take a running leap.

    Smart 'n' simple has worked for the last 8 years..heh.

    Non uniform days, again black jeans, black shoes, and black T-Shirt...all thinkgeek, all IT Themed.

    The head quite liked the "I have a shotgun, a short temper, and a raised floor in the server room. Do not trifle with me." one. Kids like the "STFU, Please.", and the missus likes the "I void warranties" one.

    Still got to find a suitable walking stick/cane though.

    Re: Dress Code

    Black jeans, walking trainers, shirt n leather jacket. As long as i've got my ID badge and my glasses on no-one bothers me. (Intent look helps as well).

    Re: Dress Code

    Heh..yes..ID badges...

    Yes...

    Hmm...

    You'd think we'd all wear them, wouldn't you...but I don't think most people have one. I have my one from 2001, but they haven't been redone since.

    Re: Dress Code

    My badge is held together with various bits of electrical tape and araldite. Pretty much like my glasses.
