Parents must apply for school places for their children through the council where they live, even if the school they wish their child to attend is in another council area. Co-ordinated admission schemes explain how the council will work with other councils to co-ordinate the applications.
North Lincolnshire has two co-ordinated admission schemes. One for admission to primary, infant and junior schools, and one for admission to secondary schools. The schemes co-ordinate admissions to all publicly-funded schools (including those in the areas surrounding North Lincolnshire) ensuring that parents receive only one offer of a school place on the national offer day.
