    School rules here are all male members of staff are to wear Shirt, Tie, Trousers and Shoes, Unless you are the DT technician (due to health and safety reasons), women are to wear smart "business" clothing, although there is working parting discussing the school dress code.

    During Term time it's smart trousers, safety shoes and a black polo shirt/sweater. Holiday is more relaxed.

    Officially we need to be as smart as is practical for our work, unofficially that only seems to apply to the male members of staff and SMT.
    Saying that though, if I wear a shirt I have to wear a tie unless the school has suspended the requirement for students to wear them and short sleeves aren't encouraged (We get emailed telling us what level of dress is expected of the male staff; "dress code level 1" = buttoned up shirt, ties and rolled down sleeves or "dress code level 2" = optional no ties, top shirt button undone and rolled up sleeves).
    I tend to just wear the same trousers, shirt, tie combinations I used to when I worked in the private sector during term time and jeans and t-shirt in holidays.

    Smart casual -no jeans. Males in school have to wear shirt and tie
    I tend to wear smart suit trousers and long-sleeved tops. Rarely wear a skirt as that is bound to be the day I need to crawl under desks.
    I would love a school polo shirt though.
    In my other school,(which is a junior,) there seems to be little or no dress code - in the summer the teachers wear very skimpy tops and skirts or long shorts, with flip-flops. Very unprofessional I think

    Gotta love how casually sexist education is.


    I'm usually in jeans and a T-shirt/shirt. Not really supposed to be wearing jeans... but I cleared it with the HT. His view was that it doesn't apply to me and the site team.

    Term time, smart trousers, shirt and shoes. Don't wear a tie as it 'could' be a hazard. It was a nice change to wear a full suit for open morning.

    Holidays, anything goes!

    I wouldn't want to be put in a different category to the main staff as I think that fosters the "them and us" attitude and also doesn't help the teachers to see IT as highly qualified and specialist as they are.
    As for the casual sexism - not here - female staff have to have covered shoulders, no very short skirts or shorts, and no flip-flops are allowed

    I don't mind the allowance. I'm under tables and whatnot, so something more hard wearing is "appropriate clothing".

    And we've had a PE teacher get told to wear a shirt + shoes [tie optional], when female staff are nearly falling out of their tops.

    Jumper, shirt and tie usually. As it is really hot at the minute I go with shirt and no tie.

    Smart trousers and shoes always.

    Trousers and shirt (short sleeved) and smart shoes. I have been known to wear a tie but that happens rarely these days. Denim of any sort is banned during term time. During the holidays it's jeans and t-shirt along with trainers.

    NM wears office smarts whereas the gentleman technicians wear hardwearing work trousers + shirt.
    I'm more comfortable in office wear and not bothered doing my dirtier duties in them.
