Parents who have applied online for a reception or junior school place can collect their offer from Monday, 18 April 2016.
The County Council will post offer letters to parents or carers who made a telephone or paper form application on the same day.
The Council is advising parents to accept the place offered even if the school was not one of their preferences, as this makes sure that their child will have a school place for September.
Once offers have been collected, parents need to accept or decline the place. Then they can apply for transport. There is the opportunity to appeal online for a school that has not been able to offer a place for a child.
Parents who have applied online, can go to the county council’s website to collect their offer from 18 April 2016: http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions
The vast majority of children will have been given a place at their school of choice through the admissions system this year, despite an increase in the number of requests for the more popular schools. Along with the rest of the country, Lincolnshire has experienced high numbers of families wanting their children to start school in September. There are over 7,800 children wanting a school place this year, the largest year group since 2009.
