Compulsory Education

Under the Compulsory Education Act, Singapore Citizens born after 1 January 1996and residing in Singapore are required to attend national primary schools regularly. Thus, a child who is at least 6 years old on 1 January of the year of admission to Primary One has to register at the Primary One Registration Exercise the preceding year.
If a child is assessed as being not ready or suitable for Primary One on medical grounds, a parent may seek approval from the Compulsory Education Unit for deferment of registration.

Primary One Internet System for Registration
This year, MOE will introduce the Primary One Internet System (P1-IS) in 80 Primary Schools. The P1-IS serves as an alternate channel to facilitate the registration of children during Phase 2C and Phase 2C Supplementary in these 80 schools. To register online via the P1-IS, both Parents’ SingPass are required. Parents who register online will have to produce the originals of each required document to the school the child is successfully registered when requested by the school or upon reporting to the school.

Parents who do not wish to use the P1-IS to register their child into the participating schools can continue to do so by going to these schools for registration, like for all other schools.

Address Used for Registration
The address to be used for the registration of children in the Primary One registration is the official residential address on the parents’ NRIC. This address will be used to determine the home-school distance category. Parents may obtain a list of schools within the 1km and 1-2km distance categories from the OneMap SchoolQuery Servicemanaged by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) in June.
