Network Managers & ICT Techs in Secondary Schools & Academies: Dress Code?
IT department branded polo shirts and smart trousers, although this usually translates to black jeans.
Holidays, just casual clothes (usually jeans/shorts and a t-shirt).
Department shirts say IT Department, whereas mine says IT Manager.
We also get similarly branded hoodies, jumpers, light jackets and winter coats, plus hard hat and neon jackets.

I used to wear workwear trousers. They were good and hard wearing whilst also being smart and comfortable. I'm in a primary school now though, so anything goes. I'm in brown skinny jeans and a nice top at the moment. Some of the staff here wear some awful clothes. I hope when the new head starts that they implement staff dress code. I wouldn't mind looking smarter!

During school time: black shoes, smart shorts or trousers (usually always in shorts unless in meetings), shirt and tie
Holidays: any old clothes of mine that I dont mind getting dirty or ruined
Managed to get the Heads in all my three schools to agree to me wearing shorts as I argued that females could wear skirts in the summer.

I've worn my Islamic attire all my working life (Think Arab Shiekh, if you wanna paint a picture!)
My schools have never had a problem with it and I've never been challenged otherwise. So much so, that when one of my many previous RM managers bought in a formal uniform, he exempted me from the policy. Kudos to him on that one!
The only thing I have been challenged on was trainers, but the amount of posh shoes I've had to go through, trainers were the only real option. He did promise us steel toe caps, but he left before the policy was implemented!

Why wait for them?? Sounds like a great excuse to go out and buy some new suits / dresses, shoes and of course handbags!! Yay!

I'd always worn plain black polo-shirts until recently... now I have them with the ANME logo on - didn't ask, but no one seems to mind... got them done at the same place the school gets their printing & PE branded stuff done - Galaxyprint

Our school staff dress code forces me into shirt, tie, trousers and shoes

School branded shirts with 'ICT Support' added, black combat trousers and shoes.
When I was promoted to ICT Manager I made of point of saying I should wear the same as my technicians and the Head at the time agreed.

I used to wear branded polo's but had to buy them out of my own pocket, so just bought shirts which were better quality anyway.

Jesus, do you not all melt in the summer? Camo combat shorts and a t-shirt (usually a band or some geeky slogan) here with either trainers or steelies and full length combats in the winter. I was forced to wear a suit in my last job and HATED it, i've never worn one to work since.

I would be pretty annoyed if that happened here - it isn't a religious requirement as far as I know, it is your choice so how come you get to keep your choice and others can't keep theirs?

Shirt and tie for term time. Anything we like for non term time. Overalls provided for 'dirty' work as and when.

That sounds pretty awesome to me, dressed as a sheikh to work.

Shirt, tie etc here...though the last few days I have been chancing it with no tie. No-one important has mentioned it, so it may become a regular occurrence! I'd rather be in polo shirts etc like the good old days, but it's not going to happen unfortunately
