Along with the rest of the country, Lincolnshire has experienced high numbers of families wanting their children to start school in September.

There are around 7,500 children wanting a school place this year.

Of the offers made to Lincolnshire primary schools, 7,065 children, which is around 94 per cent, will receive their first choice of school.

A further 292 have been offered their second choice, and 50 more their third choice. A small minority of children, 95, will be offered a school that isn’t one of their three preferences.

Parents have until May 21, to lodge an appeal if they are unhappy with the offered school.
