School councils have the authority to develop and implement dress codes for their students as outlined in legislation relating to dress codes.

Schools work with their school communities in:

  • developing and reviewing dress codes
  • implementing and enforcing dress codes

All dress codes must meet:

  • human rights and anti-discrimination requirements
  • include an exemption process
  • health and safety considerations
  • requirements relating to uniform supply arrangements.

Schools also work with the State Schools' Relief to support students in need as well as supporting their fundraising activities.
