  • 7. Kindergarten is not part of the formal education system in Singapore. As such Grade 1 students have extremely varied competency in English and mathematics. Learning Support in Mathematics caters to students who do not have the basic numeracy experiences for one reason or another. There is a parallel learning support program for English (LSP).

  • 9. By the end of Grade 4, students who still have not mastered the basics have the option to do Foundation Mathematics, instead of the regular Mathematics program.   Foundation Mathematics allows students in Grades 5 and 6 to revisit the basics they missed in the first four grades using age-appropriate materials and also allows them to acquire sufficient fifth and sixth grade content to proceed to secondary school.
