Where  there  are  more  applicants  for  the  available  places  with  a  category,  then  the distance  between  the  Ordnance Survey  address  points  for  the  school  and the  home address, measured in a straight line, will be used as the final determining factor nearer the addresses  having  priority  over more  distant ones.  This  address  point  is  within  the body  of  the  property  and  usually  located  at  its  centre. Where  the  cut off  point  for  the addresses  within  the  same  building,  then  the  single  measure  between  address  points will  apply  and  the Local  Authority’s  system  of  a  random  draw  will  determine  which address(es) receive the offer(s).
