Glasgow City Council Welcome to Pollokshields Primary School

Food and Uniforms

Children are welcome to bring a small healthy snack (e.g. fruit, small sandwich) to eat at the morning interval.  Children should bring a water bottle and can refill it throughout the day. Following parent wishes sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks are not allowed during the school day.

School lunches are free for Primary 1 to 4 children and £1.90 for older children (in cash).  Menus change daily and can be viewed on the Fuel Zone website. The Halal menu is served at our school and there is always plenty of choice! Children can of course alternatively bring a packed lunch or go home at the lunch interval. Free school meals can be applied for via the Glasgow City Council website. We do not recommend that children are routinely allowed takeaway food as a 'home lunch' as this affects their afternoon concentration and general health.


School uniform is black or grey trousers/shalwar or skirt, school sweatshirt and school polo shirt.  White shirts and school ties can also be worn and there are kilt, summer dress and cardigan options. School sweatshirts, polo shirts, ties, kilts, dresses and also (optional) bags, coats and caps can be ordered (cash payment needed) via Mrs Shabnam Iqbal the Home Link Assistant (usually available every morning via the school office), or online via  For PE black or grey tracksuit trousers or shorts and plimsolls or similar shoes should be worn, jewellery removed and long hair tied back. Clothing Grant forms can be requested from the school office or downloaded from Glasgow City Council's website. Mrs Iqbal can be contacted via the school office for help with filling out free school meals or clothing grant forms.
