Question

To ask the Minister for Education (Schools) (a) when was the Primary 1 registration form (pupil data form) last updated; and (b) whether there are plans to update the form so as to modify the occupations listed for both parents to reflect the gender diversity in an increasing number of occupations.

Response

MOE periodically updates the Pupil Data Form, when necessary. It was last updated in 2016, to make changes to the declaration clause.

The occupations listed in the form are those that have been more commonly reported by parents. Parents whose occupations are not listed can specify their occupation under ‘Others’.

MOE is planning to digitise the form via an upcoming online portal for parents called Parents Gateway. As part of this shift, we are undertaking a comprehensive review of the various data fields in the form, including the lists of occupations for both parents.
