Punggol View Primary is one of the seven new primary schools that took in students from 2013. As recommended by the Primary Education Review and Implementation (PERI) Committee, the school has new design norms such as redesigned classrooms, dance and performing arts studios, as well as an outdoor jogging path. These facilities support the delivery of holistic education, and facilitate engaged learning in both academic and
co-curriculum education.

Students can look forward to new facilities that will support educational approaches, which encourage more interaction and self-discovery, and facilitate experiential and hands-on learning. The new facilities also better support differentiated learning, to meet the learning needs of different groups of students.

The school currently offers classes to Primary 1, 2, 3 and 4 students, and will offer 8 classes of Primary 1 in 2016. The Mother Tongue Languages currently offered are Malay Language, Chinese Language and Tamil Language. Tamil Language is offered only to Primary 1, 2 and 3 students in 2016.

 In alignment with PERI initiatives, Punggol View Primary currently operates as a single-session school so as to commit to providing more space and time for holistic education. To facilitate this, the school starts at 7.50 am. This will allow students to have adequate rest before they start school every weekday.

Operating hours are:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: 7.50 am to 1.40 pm
Thursday: 7.50 am to 3.40 pm

To achieve MOE’s Desired Outcomes of Education and besides the standard subjects offered by all primary schools, Punggol View Primary will be embarking on the following PERI initiatives in 2016:
  • Holistic Assessment
  • Programme for Active Learning (PAL)
  • PE, Music and Art (PAM)
  • Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP)

Punggol View Primary provides outdoor learning journeys and other enrichment activities for its students. To meet the needs and interests of our students, the school will offer a range of CCAs in the area of Uniformed Group (Scout), Performing Arts (Art, Choir and Dance), Sports (Badminton, Floorball, Rugby and Wushu), and Clubs and Societies (Robotics, Service & Interact Club, Sports & Adventure Club) from Primary 3 onwards in 2017.
