Viewlands Primary was built in 1942 and shares grounds with Perth Academy and Fairview School. The school itself is all on one level and has a large playground which has been developed over recent years to include a trim trail, a quiet area and a wildlife garden.
Viewlands has a nursery class (morning and afternoon) and fourteen primary classes. We are very lucky to have a large gym hall, an large assembly hall that is also used as a dining room, an ICT suite, a GP room and a variety of breakout spaces that are generally used for teaching smaller groups.
We have a large area in the centre of the school which hosts our school library there are also large comfy sofa's that children and parents can come and sit and relax. The school has a very good reputation within the community and the positive ethos of the school encourages high expectations, enthusiasm, hard work and a caring attitude towards others.
We strive to ensure that all our children achieve their potential in terms of personal, educational, and social development within a balanced curriculum. We are very proud of our school, and this is reflected in the very good behaviour of our pupils and in the quality of work displayed in classrooms and corridors. Parents are welcome to visit the school at any time and can arrange to speak with school staff about their children’s education and well-being. This partnership is encouraged to ensure we can nuture the best approaches to get it right for all our learners. Parents are encouraged to get involved wherever / whenever possible. with the life of the school.
Some of the regular opportunities are through our twice-yearly Parent Contact Evenings, open afternoons, class showcases, drama productions, craft afternoons and on many other occasions. We also encourage parental involvement through helping with sports, educational trips, and topic related activities.
The positive partnership that exists between parents and teachers is greatly assisted by an active Parent Council which represents the whole parent forum to which all parents belong. Please look at our Parent Council Page.
