Registration phases and key dates

Primary 1 (P1) registration is conducted in several phases. Check for your child's eligible P1 registration phases and their key dates.

  • There will be changes to the P1 Registration Framework starting from the 2022 P1 Registration Exercise for children starting P1 in 2023. Find out more.

P1 registration is conducted over several phases. Phases 1 to 2C Supplementary apply to children who are Singapore Citizens (SC) and Permanent Residents (PR).

If your child is an international student, you will need to register them through a 2-step process under Phase 3. Find out how.

Registration phases for SCs and PRs

You may register your child online in a phase as long as you fulfil at least one of the requirements for that phase.

You can only register your child in one school at any phase. Multiple applications will not be accepted. If you have submitted your online application and wish to make an amendment during the same phase, you may submit a new online application within the same phase. In these situations, MOE will take your latest online application submitted during the stipulated registration period of the same registration phase.

If you have secured a P1 place for your child in a previous registration phase, you will need to withdraw your place from the school before registering in another school. Unless you have withdrawn your place, MOE will not process any further online applications made for your child and your child will remain in the school that your child had earlier secured a place at. You are to ensure that the child has been successfully withdrawn before submitting another online application.
We encourage all parents to discuss well ahead and decide on their preferred school before submitting the online registration. This is to avoid the need to make any withdrawals or amendments which may lead to delays or missing a registration phase and as a result not getting into your preferred school.

  • P1 registration is not first come, first served. There is no special priority given to early registrants, whether through P1-IS or online form.
  • If you require assistance with your online application, please refer to the step-by-step guides provided above or contact your school of choice via email or phone. Do expect delays as schools may experience high volume during P1 registration period. Schools will contact you in due course upon receipt of your email.
