Primary Schools in Singapore
A child starts studying at Primary One at the age of six and studies for 6 years of compulsory education. He/she then sits for the Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE) before moving on to secondary school for another four or five years. The Primary School Education consists of a 4-year foundation stage from Primary 1 to 4 and a 2-year orientation stage from Primary 5 to 6.
The overall aim of primary education is to give students a good grasp of English language, Mother Tongue and Mathematics. Students are encouraged to participate in Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) and Community Involvement Programme (CIP).
Schools tailored for handicapped children are also available and are mainly operated by managed by private schools/ organisations.
