The admissions policy 2020 / 21 on the school website says that distances will be measured as per the Medway Coordinated Admissions Scheme.

Which in turn says:

Distance:
All distances and routes calculated are for the purposes of prioritising the application for
admissions only and there is no expectation that a child should use this to walk to school.
Distances and routes calculated will represent the shortest route to school from the child’s home
address using roads and paths that are known to the graphical information software (GIS) utilised
The start point:
 The centre point of the nearest road or footpath known to the GIS system to the seed
point of the child’s home (as defined by Ordnance Survey).
 This may not always be the postal address road, in circumstances where an alternative
road or footpath is actually nearer to the seed point of the property.
The end point:
 This will be either a pre-defined point within the school site or the centre point of the road
 The same end point is used for all distance calculations to the school concerned.
Routes/Footpaths:
 The distance calculated is the shortest available route known to the Medway GIS (using
the centre point of the streets and other available routes.
 Not all footpaths, cut-throughs, shortcuts and new roads are known to the GIS system.
Where a route is not known to the GIS system an alternative route will be used.
 Where a child’s home is situated on a new road the distance calculation will begin from
the nearest available known road plotted in the GIS. New property developments may be
subject to this.
