Primary One Internet System (P1-IS)

Dear Parents,

From 5 July 2016, selected e-government transactions involving sensitive data, including the Primary One Internet System (P1-IS), will require 2-Step Verification (2FA). This means that in addition to your SingPass ID and password, you will need to enter a One-Time Password (OTP) sent via SMS or generated through OneKey Token to access these e-Services.

Parents who intend to use the P1-IS in Phase 2C / 2C Supplementary are required to set up their SingPass 2FA. Parents should set up their SingPass 2FA early, well before the commencement of Phase 2C online registration on 26 July 2016. Parents should note that they will need to wait up to seven working days for a PIN mailer to activate the 2FA before they can perform sensitive e-transactions.

For more information on the 2FA setup, please visit the SingPass website.

Note: Internet Explorer 11 is recommended for optimal use of P1-IS.

The Primary One Internet System (P1-IS) serves as an alternate channel to facilitate the registration of children during Phase 2C and Phase 2C Supplementary. Parents who register online will need to produce the original of each required document to the school that the child is successfully registered into, when requested by the school or upon reporting to the school. For details on online registration, please refer to the P1-IS Guide.

Online Registration via P1-IS

Parents may register online if,

  • your child is eligible for registration in Phase 2C or 2C Supplementary
  • your child’s birth is registered in Singapore
  • both parents have valid SingPass with 2FA setup
  • both parents are Singapore Citizens or Singapore Permanent Residents at the time of your child’s birth

In addition, single parents may register online via the P1-IS if (i) only that parent’s particulars are reflected in the child’s Birth Certificate, or (ii) one parent is deceased.

The P1-IS is accessible 24 hours during the following periods:

  • Phase 2C

    Starting from 9.00 am on 26 July 2016 to 4.30 pm on 28 July 2016.

  • Phase 2C Supplementary

    Starting from 9.00 am on 9 August 2016 to 4.30 pm on 11 August 2016.

Please refer to Frequently Asked Questions for more information on P1-IS.

The address reflected in the P1-IS is the official residential address on both parents’ NRIC as at 31 May 2016. If the address in the P1-IS is different from that currently on your NRIC, please approach your school of choice with the required documents to register your child.
