It appears that the new head of OFSTED is developing criteria to rate teachers dress. I understand that the grades will not be the usual Outstanding, Good, Satisfactory etc. But Savil Row, M&S, George at ASDA and OXFAM. The problem is that the geographers have their woolly jumpers, the science folk have their white coats etc. BUT what IS appropriate dress for an ICT teacher? Will my Iron Maiden T-shirt and trainers be seen to be undermining achievement? There is already a focus on footwear in the bid for higher academic standards! Today they will ban flip-flops - tomorrow it will be trainers!! I need advice!
