Assured School Placement

We will guarantee your child a place in a school with vacancies as near to your residential address as possible, providing you with greater certainty and convenience. Learn more about the application process.

We encourage Returning Singaporeans who are looking for a primary or secondary school place near their residence to apply through the Assured School Placement service.




Submit the application form for School Placement for Returning Singaporeans within 3 months of the intended date of school admission. For example, for your child to start school in July, you should submit the form in April.

If a permanent Singapore address is not available at the point of this application, you will have to provide an intended residential area in Singapore for us to process your request.

Receive notification

We will identify 2 or 3 schools that have vacancies for you, based on the residential address indicated in your application form.

If there is only 1 school with vacancies near your residential address, we will place your child in that school. This will take approximately 3 working days.

Confirm school choice

Once a school place is confirmed, it will be guaranteed and reserved for your child. Contact the school to arrange for any pre-admission procedures once you have received the school offer letter from MOE.


Take school-based tests and interview

The school can conduct school-based tests and/or interview to determine the level and class or course/posting group for your child before they start school.

Prepare for school

Contact the school for information on how to purchase new uniforms and textbooks. Learn how to prepare your child for the transition to primary school or secondary school.

To ensure that your child has a good learning experience, schools typically do not accept new students during the final school term from around mid-September to November.

Therefore, if you plan to enrol your child after Term 3, we will process your application and notify you by end-December regarding admission for the following year. In some cases where there may be a slight delay in processing, we remain committed that every SC and PR child will be offered a school place by mid-January.
