Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible to participate in STEPS, the child must satisfy the following criteria:

  1. The child is a Singapore Citizen or Singapore Permanent Resident;
  2. The child is currently attending Primary 1 to Primary 5 in 2017;
  3. The parents / guardians have changed their residential address within the last two years i.e. 01 January 2016 to 31 December 2017 (both dates inclusive).

What you need to know

A student seeking a transfer to Primary 5 or Primary 6 in 2018 will be posted to a school with available vacancies and is nearer to his / her residential address.

On successful posting to a school, the parents / guardians can discuss with the school to decide on an appropriate subject combination.

Schools generally offer similar subject combinations.  Should parents / guardians wish for a school to offer a definitive subject combination he / she wants, they may wish to apply for a transfer to their preferred school outside of the STEPS period (17 November 2017 to 15 December 2017).
