Starting in Reception
Children who are born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 are due to start Reception in September 2017.
Lincolnshire parents can apply for a place from 14 November 2016 for the 2017 Reception intake.
The ‘Lincolnshire School Guide’ and the ‘Going to Primary School in Lincolnshire’ books are available below to download.
Please be aware that the schools oversubscription criteria in the Going to School in Lincolnshire book may be out of date, please see the schools full policy on our website instead.
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.
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.

Even if the closing date has passed you can still apply for a school place. If the apply online facility is no longer available you can still apply on a paper application, you can request one by telephoning our Customer Service Centre on 01522 782030. Late applications and changes received after 12 noon on 17 February 2017 will not be dealt with in time for offer day on 18 April 2017 and will be processed at a later date.
