At Viewforth High School we recognise that one major aspect of a successful school is that pupils have a strong set of values which include a recognised pride in their school and a respect for their community. Our values of care, ambition, respect and equity underpin this. Alongside high attainment, achievement and good behaviour, the wearing of school uniform is a major influence on how the community and others perceive a school and the calibre of its young people. It is also a mechanism to promote equity amongst pupils.
The Viewforth High School uniform consists of:
S1-3 Plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and school tie, a black sweatshirt with the school badge or a black v-neck jumper or cardigan and black shoes or plain black trainers.
S4-6 Plain black trousers or skirt (which should be knee length), white shirt and school tie, a black sweatshirt with the school badge or a black v-neck jumper or cardigan and black shoes or plain black trainers. In addition, all S4, S5 and S6 pupils wear a blazer and there will be an opportunity to be measured for blazers in the new term.
If you require support to ensure your child is appropriately dressed for school, please contact your child’s Guidance Teacher.
