Northern Territory Department of Education Policy

School Uniforms Policy

The Northern Territory Department of Education School Uniforms policy does not directly address anti-discrimination legislation, nor does it comment on gender related considerations.

The policy does identify the need for community engagement in the creation of a school uniform policy, stating that:

Principals are responsible for, in consultation with their school communities, developing, reviewing and communicating a dress code for their school
