Singapore primary school term 2021

The entire school calendar for primary school children is generally divided into 4 terms with each term taking up about 3 months including the holidays.

You can expect the new school year to start in January. Due to Covid-19 measures this year, the primary school start date in 2021 is going to be on Jan 4 for Primary 1 children while the rest of the primary school levels children will start school on Jan 5.

Take note that the exam period will be in the second and fourth term for all levels with the exception of Primary 6 where the children will be taking their CA1 exam some time in during the February to March period.

2020 Singapore School Holidays

The March school holidays and September school holidays in Term 1 and Term 3 are a week long while the June and December holidays are the longer holidays and they last about 1 month. So if you are planning for a family bonding trip overseas, it is good to plan it during that time.


You can download a copy of these school holidays along with the rest of the public holiday schedule into your iCal / Google calendar for your easy reference.
