PARENTS with children starting primary school next September are urged to apply for a place by the end of this term.
The closing date for on-line applications is January 20 but Lincolnshire County Council says few people apply after term has ended because of the Christmas rush.
So far 4,000 people have applied on-line this year but the council expects another 3,700 by the closing date.
Applications can be made at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions or you can request an application pack by calling 01522 782030.
Offers of places will be available to view on the website from midnight on April 26.
