Starting in Reception
Lincolnshire parents can apply for a place from 19 November 2012 for the 2013 Reception intake.
You can download the ‘Lincolnshire School Guide’ and the ‘Going to Primary School in Lincolnshire’ book by clicking on the ‘Downloads’ tab towards the top of this page.
The preferred method for applying for a Reception place is online. Click here to apply for a place online. You can also apply by telephoning our Customer Service Centre on 01522 782030. Alternatively you can request a paper application using the same number.
You can apply for up to three state schools, in or out of county on your application. We strongly advise you to name three schools on your application as we cannot guarantee a place at your most preferred school.
If you do not live in Lincolnshire you must apply through your home local authority. You can name Lincolnshire schools on this application.
Different rules apply if you are Service Personnel, live abroad or live in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales.
Schools provide useful information on their own websites and they also produce a school prospectus. For further information on schools that are not in Lincolnshire, please visit the website for the school’s Local Authority.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon, 14 January 2013.
