How are distances measured?

Walking distances (up to three miles) are measured using the shortest available walking route which may include roads and recognised footpaths. The measurement is made between the nearest entrance to your house (for example, a front gate) and the nearest entrance to the school grounds. Private driveways to homes and within schools are not included in the measurement. Distances over three miles are measured by road.  Distances are measured using an electronic geographic information system (GIS)
