Registration Process

Registration process

Parents can submit their child's STEPS application via the STEPS-Internet System (STEPS-IS) or at the child's primary school during the STEPS period. 

Internet registration via STEPS-IS

The STEPS-IS serves as a convenient channel to facilitate the registration of children.  STEPS-IS registration for parents will start from 10 am on 16 November 2018 to 11.59 pm on 20 November 2018 (including weekends).

Parents can log on to STEPS-IS using the child's BC No. / UIN and both parents' NRIC numbers and SingPasses.  For details on the internet registration, please refer to the Step-by-Step Guide.

Upon successful registration, parents are required to print and retain a copy of the Acknowledgement Slip.  You will be required to use the Acknowledgement Number to view the posting outcome from 11 to 17 December 2018

Important notes:

  • SingPass 2-Step Verification (2FA) 

Parents who intend to use the STEPS-IS are required to set up their SingPass 2FA.  Parents are advised to set up their SingPass 2FA early if they have not done so. 

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

  • This e-service may take you 10 to 20 minutes to complete.

Registration at current primary school

STEPS registration at schools will be conducted on 19, 20 and 21 November 2018.  Parents should approach their child's current school and submit their applications through the school between 8 am and 5 pm each day.

For registration / amendment / withdrawal at schools, parents have to produce the following documents for verification:

  • Child's Birth Certificate
  • Both parents' original NRICs with the updated residential address
  • Any other supporting documents

What you need to know

The smooth operation of STEPS depends on parents furnishing correct information in the application especially that of the residential address.  To this end, parents will be required to make an undertaking stating that they have changed their residential addresses between 01 January 2017 and 31 December 2018 (both dates inclusive).  The address to be used for the registration of children in the STEPS registration should be the parents' official residential address as reflected on their NRICs.

Any transfer of school resulting from false or incorrect information furnished in the application will be nullified and in such an event, the child affected may be posted to any school as assigned by the Ministry of Education (MOE).
