Parents of non-Singapore Citizen (SC) / non-Permanent Resident (PR) children should note that admission is not guaranteed as there are limited vacancies remaining for non-SC / non-PR children after places are allocated to SC / PR children.

MOE will publish the list of available primary schools for parents to register their child in this phase. MOE will thereafter centrally process all the applications and the posting outcome will be released to parents by 30 November 2016.

School posting will take into consideration factors such as availability of school vacancies and ensuring a good spread of students.

In view that Phase 3 vacancies are limited, MOE posting is final. We will therefore not entertain nor reply to appeals on the posting results. Our schools will also not entertain any walk-in applications for admissions or transfer of non-SC / non-PR children.

As admission is not guaranteed, parents of non-SC / non-PR children are advised to consider alternative educational options well ahead, even as you may decide to register your child during Phase 3 of the Primary One  Registration Exercise.

You may wish to know:

The number of Primary One vacancies each school will offer for the Primary One Registration Exercise will be made available in June before the registration begins. Parents can refer to Primary Schools Vacancies by Phases for information on vacancies for each school.

Balloting will be conducted if the number of applications to a school exceed the number of vacancies during any phase from Phase 2A(1) onwards. Please refer to Allocation of Places for details on balloting.

Parents can refer to Primary Schools Conducting Balloting to find out which schools will be conducting balloting at the end of each registration phase.

Parents will be notified of the results of registration by post, after the school has conducted balloting (if required) and before commencement of the next phase of registration. Parents should check with the school if they do not receive any notifications. 

Parents of non-SC / non-PR children who registered under Phase 3 will be notified of the outcome by post by 30 November 2016.
