    We don't have any kind of ID here. Not sure if they'd be very useful in a small(ish) school like ours. In the larger secondary school I can see the use.

    Waste of money for us. Majority of staff would not wear them and every bloody time somebody had their hair style changed they wanted a new bloody photo and badge. I gave up in the end.

    Re: Dress Code

    Meant to wear ID badges here too. All have them but hardly anyone wears them, including myself I am sorry to say. Problem I have is I hate things clipped to clothing (as I don't have a pocket in front), hate lanyards & if I have it attached to my belt it gets no one can see it anyways. If i have combats on it gets clipped to a side pocket but I don't always so spoils that plan.

    Re: Dress Code

    No ID at my place, despite having nearly 200 staff and nearly every day seeing someone and not having a clue who they are due to the size of the place

    Re: Dress Code

    We have proximity door locks on entrances and some inner doors (doors from our foyer, doors to the staff room and ICT rooms etc...), so everyone has to have an ID card to get through those doors. And the rule is that they must be worn in a visible manner - so on a lanyard or a belt clip or the like.

    Re: Dress Code

    The reason we have ID is that most teachers don't know many teachers outside their departments or building.

    We get a lot of trainee teachers aswell, but I've known some teachers to be here for two or three years and when they leave the office another teacher who's also being here a long time will ask who they are.

    Snickers workwear is amazing - lasts for years. My brother recommended it to me and he's a carpet fitter so needs the toughest. I've had two pairs of thier trousers - no wear after 3+ years of crawling under desks. Not cheap though - but then nothing good ever is...

    This man speaks sense! We have Snickers work trousers here, in black. I also wear them to do the garden, go fishing in, and they still look good!
    We WERE required to wear smart shirt, trousers and a tie, but we soon knocked than on the head! Even a four quid shirt from Asda is a waste when it's covered in toner Now we wear a black polo with the school logo on, Snickers work trousers, black trainers. No ID badges whatsoever though. No staff do here.

    £40 for a pair of work trousers!!(and that is the cheapest)
    They'd have to last for ever at that price!

    Re: Dress Code

    One school I worked at wanted me to wear a polo shirt with the school logo on it but then changed their minds when they saw my tattoo's Annoyed the other IT guys no end as they wanted to wear them and I said if they did then I would do them for discrimination.

    No. They also complained about my earring and wanted me to remove it until I pointed out that unless all the women removed theirs as well I would do the school for discrimination.

    Re: Dress Code

    Actually I quite agree about the earring - and about the polo shirts - you can get long sleeved ones anyway which presumably would solve the tattoo problem.

    Re: Dress Code

    I wear long sleeve shirts but sleeves are often rolled up when i'm working so all tattoos on show. Not much they can do about the 20mm flesh tunnels in my ears though they have complained about hair-colour before. Till I pointed out how few female members of staff were their natural hair colour.

    They were only willing to buy short sleeve shirts
