This accessibility statement applies to our website, which is hosted by the Department of Education, University of Oxford. Our Department is committed to the principles of diversity and inclusion, and we want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.  This statement reports the conformance of our website to WC3’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 AA standard.


Summary of accessibility issues

We know that some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • Some of our pages contain a tab structure, but the tabs are not operable by keyboard or if styling is removed;
  • When styling is removed, some of our carrousels disappear;
  • The same carrousels do not contain descriptive links detectable by assistive technologies;
  • The tiles in some of our carrousels are of a fixed height, such that increasing the line height or paragraph/word/letter spacing significantly will cause the bottom of the text to become cut off;

We are currently developing the site to help resolve some of these issues.
