Criteria for Non-Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents

Under the guidelines set by the Ministry of Education (MOE), children who are not Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents cannot be admitted ahead of Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents on the waiting list.

In line with the revision of MOE's Foreign Pupil Fees Policy, foreign pupils who are children of Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents admitted to Special Education (SPED) schools in 2002, and those admitted on, or after 1 January 2003 will have to pay full foreign pupil fees with effect from 1 January 2003 in accordance with the current per capita cost.

With this change in policy, foreign pupils who are dependents of employment pass holders will be treated as the above group of foreign pupils.

Foreign pupils who are in SPED schools prior to 1 January 2002 will not be affected by the changes and will continue to pay the rates of school fees of their respective schools until they leave the SPED school system. Prior approval from MOE must be sought for admission to our school programmes.
