Website accessibility

Using this website

Seaford Primary School runs this website. We aim to make it as easy to use as possible. We want you to be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using only a keyboard
  • listen to our website using a screen reader.

Go to AbilityNet to find out how to make these changes.


We use plain English to make the text easy to read. We aim to create content for a reading age of 11. We regularly run readability audits on our content and make continual improvements. As of 30 September 2021, our content meets WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards.

If you would like to read the website in another language, there is a link in the footer to Google translate.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

As part of our commitment to accessibility we are required to publish where we know there are issues with our website.

Compliance status

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.

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services, but may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (Name, role value) or 1.3.1 (Info and Relationships).

Some PDFs and documents do not have a title. A screen reader may not be able to identify it to the user. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.2 (Page Titled).

Some documents have missing or incorrect alternative text. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (Non-text Content).

Some documents do not have a language attribute set, which is needed for a screen reader to know the default language of the document. This does not meet WCAG 2.1 success criterion 3.1.1 (Language of Page).

We are working to either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages. Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish should meet accessibility standards.
