Accessibility Policy

We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible for all our website visitors, including those with disabilities.

We try to adhere to the most stringent standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium, which is an international group responsible for setting standards for web technologies.  The Consortium has set up a specialist task group, the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), to define standards on web accessibility for disabled users.

The WAI produces varying levels of standards and grades them in order of importance.  Organisations can use these grades to decide what level of accessibility to aim for.  The Nord Anglia Education Limited aims to stick to all of the WAI’s standards.

The standards are designed to ensure that all users can access the content on our website, including:

  • Blind users
  • Partially sighted and colour-blind users
  • Deaf users
  • Hearing-impaired users
  • Users with limited mobility
  • Users with cognitive disabilities or learning difficulties
  • Users with photo-sensitive epilepsy.

How This Benefits Visitors

To illustrate how compliancy has made this site accessible, we have listed representative disabilities below and explained how this site meets the users' needs.

Visual (Impaired)

Those with visual impairments (e.g. myopia) can scale on all pages on the site to suit their own requirement. All text on pages is scaled, including all menu items.

Hearing

There is no content on this site that cannot be accessed by deaf or hard of hearing people when the correct software has been installed.

Physical

For those that have difficulty using a mouse, keyboard access is supported by using standard shortcut techniques. This site can be fully navigated without the use of a mouse.

Cognitive

The layout of this site is uniform on all pages. The main (horizontal) menu is structured identically on all pages (i.e. any page can be accessed from anywhere in the site). Additionally, section or page navigation is always included in the panel to the top of each page.

Neurological

There are no flashing images which can not be paused or text on this site which could – in extreme cases – cause difficulty for people who have particular neurological disorders.

Features for the Visually Impaired

This website incorporates several features to support blind and poor-sighted people.

Text Scaling

All text on this website is specified in percentage terms, meaning that its size can be increased inside the browser window for easier viewing. The ability to support text scaling varies from browser to browser, but given below are some guidelines for the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

  • In Internet Explorer, select the View | Text Size menu command. You can then choose from a range of text sizes (Largest, Larger, Medium (default), Smaller and Smallest). Note that Internet Explorer cannot resize images.
  • In Firefox select the View | Zoom menu command. You can also continually increase or decrease the current zoom factor by pressing the Ctrl and +, or Ctrl and - key combinations.
  • In Chrome select the Page Icon (located at the top right of the browser window) | Zoom menu command. You can also continually increase or decrease the current zoom factor by pressing the Ctrl and +, or Ctrl and - key combinations. Ctrl and 0 will reset the zoom to normal.
  • In Safari select the Page Icon (located at the top right of the browser window) | Zoom menu command. You can also continually increase or decrease the current zoom factor by pressing the Ctrl and +, or Ctrl and - key combinations. Ctrl and 0 will reset the zoom to normal.

Even the same browser product can behave differently on different platforms. For example, Internet Explorer on the Mac will scale images, whereas the Windows version cannot. Check with your supplier for further details.
