- How is eligibility determined?
We calculate the location of a home address using the property seed point. This is as defined by the National Land and Property Gazetteer.
We measure the distance using the shortest walking route from your child’s home address. This is to the nearest open gate to the school main site. It is calculated based upon the school gates, road and pathway network held at the time on the Geographical Information System (GIS). This may change over time as the network is updated and new gates, roads and paths are added or old ones removed. We will use the calculated shortest walking route to determine which is the closest school (or 3 closest when under low income grounds). We will then use the calculated shortest available walking route distance (if this differs) to determine if travel assistance is to be provided.
Note: A sibling or previous occupant of the property may have got help with travel. This does not guarantee that we will agree future travel assistance requests.
