Would you use an address that you do not stay in, just to get priority in P1 registration?

Hi everyone,

I am sure this question has been asked before but with the number of pages reaching 200 even the search function has not been able to help me here.

Anyway my question/situation is:

If I rent a place within 1km of the school I wish to enrol my child into and we are successful in 2C with the address used as the admitting factor (so no parent volunteering etc) would I be allowed to then buy a place that still remains within that 1km radius and move there for the mandatory 30 month period. We would definitely be staying within 1km and it may even be within the same building. However, would that be allowed?

I wonder if anyone has had experience with this.

Thanks in advance.
Yes. So long as both the rental unit is used as 1km priority admission & yr subsequent purchase falls within the 1-km OneMap School Query definition, it is allowed. You’ll need to update the school once u purchase & stay in new address. Yr child’s school communication letters will be sent to the address you’ve declared. So, don’t tt anything outside ofvrefukations & be found. :evil:

Many thanks for the speedy reply. That is good to know. We will definitely be staying within 1km and everything will all be above board.

Thanks again!

The school will base on the address in your NRIC

Hi there, may I know if the school will require both parents' IC to have the same address? Can I register my child using my IC (address A) for Phase 2B and if I fail, I will register with my husband's IC (address B) for Phase 2C? Thank you!

The default address that the school will look at is the child’s father’s IC address.

If not using the child’s father’s IC address, be prepared to provide documentary evidence to explain why the child is not living with him.

To be more accurate, MOE requires BOTH parents’ I/C to be submitted at point of chid’s P1 Registration. Once u try to use 2 diff addresses to register, u’ll hv explaining to do. Always refer to official MOE website.
