Secondary school offers now available online for parents who applied in this way

1 March 2018

Offers for places at secondary schools have been sent out to parents

The delivery of the secondary school offer letters are going to be delayed due to the difficulties Royal Mail are facing with the weather conditions.Please be patient and hopefully people will receive their letters by Monday depending on the weather and where people live. We cannot currentlyprovide offer results over the telephone or by e-mail. We will however be extending the deadline for people to respond to the school offer theyreceive.

Students raise their hands in assembly

Offers for places at secondary schools have been sent out to parents today with a high percentage receiving their first choice.

Parents who have applied for secondary school places for their children today can log-in to the county council’s website to see their offer. More than 4000 parents have already got their offers in this way today. For those who did not use our online system (only 4% of applications), their offers have been posted first class today.

Of the 8,054 offers made to Lincolnshire secondary schools, 88% of children will receive their first preference school (7073 children).

Councillor Mrs Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services, said:

“Yet again, it’s good to see so many children getting their first school of preference and this should be even better by September. It is always our intention to support as many parents as possible with their choice of school. There are many stories about how stressful the admissions process can be but every year the overwhelming majority of parents have no problems in gaining admission to the school of their choice.”

626 children will be offered their second choice school, and 114 will be offered their third preference. 3% of children will be offered a local school that isn’t one of their preferences - 241 children.

Because of appeals and movement on the reserve list, it is normal for the percentage of first preferences to increase by the time children start in September.

An online appeal form is available, with a deadline for appeals of noon on 17 April. If the appeal form is returned by the deadline it will be heard before the end of term - if it is received late it will still be heard but this may be in the last week of term or even in September.

Due to the severe weather, calls to our Customer Service Centre may not be answered today, however parents can email with any queries, which will be answered as soon as possible.

Please note however that you will not be given the result of your offer over the telephone or via e-mail. If you have forgotten your username or password, please use the automated facility provided. If anyone wants to change their school choices, they can request a revised application via email.
