Currently, 7.2% (638) have been offered a place in their second preference, with 1.3% (112) being offered a place in their third choice, resulting in approximately 97% of all applicants receiving the one of their favorites.

The 3.4% (297) who do not have one of their preferred schools will be offered a place at the nearest school in Lincolnshire with places available.

Councilor Mrs Patricia Bradwell OBE, Executive Adviser for Children’s Services, said: ‘It is good to see so many families receiving offers again at their school of first preference, and that figure should be even higher d September.

“We always aim to help parents make the application process as easy as possible, and it’s nice to see more and more parents using the online parent portal to apply and receive their offer when of National Offering Day.”

Parents who applied using the online application system will have received their offer letter by email today (Tuesday). Go to www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions and log in to the parent portal if you cannot access this email. Parents who applied by phone or paper form will have received their letter in the post today (March 1), first class.

Parents have until March 29 noon to appeal if they are not satisfied with the proposed school.

If parents return the appeal form before the deadline, it will be heard before the end of the summer term. If it is received late, it will still be heard, but this may be in the last week of the term or even in September.
