Notes: Sibling is defined as:
The ‘home address’ is where the child lives for the majority of the school week with a parent who has parental responsibility as defined in the Children Act 1989 and a parent includes a person who is not a parent but who has responsibility for him/her. This could include a student’s guardians but will not usually include relatives such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., unless they have all the rights, duties, powers and responsibilities and authority which by law a parent of the child has in relation to the child and his/her property. Where parents have shared responsibility for a child, the place of residency will be determined as the address where the child resides for the majority of the week, (i.e. where the child wakes up between Monday to Friday). Where the child lives equally with both parents, the address provided for claiming child benefit and, where appropriate, Child Tax Credits, will be applied to the admission application. Distances are measured in a straight line from the centrally plotted Basic Land and Property Unit point (BLPU) of the child’s home address to the centrally plotted BLPU point of the school as defined by Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG).
