I have to ask, does your school have a dress code for teachers? is it formal or an anything goes kind of style? I have to ask because I am getting embroiled in a discussion where I am being told St. Trinians is in a different universe and that they are possibly even breaking the law in stipulating a dress code for staff. It especially applies to female staff because of the modesty factor I suppose. Women teachers must wear a formal office wear. Either a suit skirt and jacket, , or a formal trouser suit . If you wear a skirt ( below knee length) you can wear a cardigan instead of a jacket. Shoes must have a sensible heel and be court shoes if wearing a skirt. Trouser shoes are acceptable for a trouser suit. No trainers or similar. Tops must cover cleavage and décolleté and must be long enough to cover midriff ( no flesh showing there) so no crop tops etc. Short or long sleeves are preferred rather than no sleeve tops. Can be a blouse or a jumper or any other top. Men must wear a suit and a shirt and tie and must have these done up at all times unless the HT has given the order so ties can be removed and a top button on the shirt opened ( in hot weather). Shoes for men must be clean and polished and not informal. No trainers etc. Hair. for men should be short but the rule is actually hair will be kept off the shoulders. For women that means tied up or tied back ( or short) Is my school unusual in doing this? I have to ask because some people think I am working in a parallel universe.
