Welcome to Viewlands Primary School

Grow through Learning

Viewlands Primary School opened its doors to the children and families of the Viewlands and Oakbank areas of Perth in 1942. It is a “double-stream” primary school, with fourteen primary classes and a nursery class with the capacity of 24 children at any one time.  Accommodation is generous with additional rooms and spaces used to good effect. The playgrounds are extensive and have recently been enhanced by the development of a wildlife garden.  On leaving Viewlands, almost all of our children transition to Perth Academy, which, along with Fairview School, share the same campus as us.

Children at Viewlands grow through learning experiences that are engaging, relevant, responsive and active. The Scottish Curriculum for Excellence is the framework we use to plan, deliver and evaluate learning and teaching.  At the very heart of our work is the ambition for each and every learner to be life-long effective contributors, responsible citizens, confident individuals and successful learners. 

Our aims are: 

  • for all children to have the opportunity to develop attitudes, skills and knowledge that will enhance their future lives.

  • to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment in which everyone can learn effectively and become confident individuals

  • to promote and actively encourage independent learning through a balanced curriculum, enabling children to become successful learners

  • to establish and maintain effective relationships between home, school and the wider community

  • to foster citizenship, mutual respect and co-operation ensuring equal opportunities for all

This website has been designed to provide relevant information both for current parents and families of Viewlands as well anyone who has an interest in Viewlands and the work of the school. Our twitter feed, @ViewlandsPS, is regularly updated and celebrates the range of activities that we are involved in.  It is embedded into this page for easy access.
