Bowmandale Primary School wants to make more room for Barton children
Bowmandale Primary School in Barton upon Humber wants to expand so it can cope with growing pupil numbers in the town.
North Lincolnshire Council has applied to expand the school from 315 pupil places to 350.
The extension to the school will see an existing classroom extended, the school hall refurbished, and a new sports hall built joining the existing building.
A temporary classroom will be removed, and replaced with a turfed play area.

The entrance to the primary school, which is off Bowmandale, will also be altered.
A North Lincolnshire Council spokeswoman said "The new extension will create extra space to cater for more pupils to meet demand, particularly from increased housing development in the area.
"The 25-year old mobile classroom will be demolished and replaced with a new school hall and entrance area with admin office.
"The existing school hall will be turned into classrooms and the building extended to create additional foundation classrooms.
"This will increase capacity at the school from 315 to 350 places."
The application states that the changes will have no affect on parking.
A decision is expected on the application by December 12.
However concerns were raised about parking outside the school at the November meeting of Barton Town Council, amidst fears more children could make the issue worse.
Cllr Paul Shearer, who lives near to the school, suggested that cars parked directly outside the front of the school meant children could not cross at points where curbs had been purposefully lowered for that reason.
He suggested a yellow line would prevent parking outside the school.
Cllr Keith Vickers also raised the prospect of a 20mph zone outside the front of Bowmandale, as is seen outside many schools, to reduce the risk of an accident.
