    Technical information about this website’s accessibility

    Kirkby and Great Broughton Church of England Primary School is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

    This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

    Non accessible content

    The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons :

    Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

    • Some images don’t have a text alternative, so the information in them isn’t available to people using a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1
    • We are aware there various colour contrast issues throughout our website . This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 and 1.4.1
    • We are aware of images containing text appearing within the site. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.5
    • We are aware that the same link text is used for links going to different destinations. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4
    • We are aware that user interface elements, that can receive keyboard focus, are not highlighted on focus. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.7
    • We are aware that WAI-ARIA roles should correspond to the intended function of the element. As they do not in places This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2

    Disproportionate burden

    Although the principle of having no text visible within an image file has been detected we cannot go through all PDF’s that have images on and add any alt text or provide the text that will be formatted through an image.

    Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

    PDFs and other documents

    Many of our older PDFs and Word documents don’t meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role value).

    Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

    The accessibility regulations don’t require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. For example, we don’t plan to fix [documents that contain images with text on as they cannot be read through a screen reader].

    Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

    Live video

    Live video streams don’t have captions. This doesn’t meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.2.4 (captions – live).

    We don’t plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
