Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Whizz Kidz is committed to making its website accessible.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Interactive tools and transactions
Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.
Our forms are built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
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. Most of our PDFs should be accessible, however some of our older ones may not be.
- We conduct thorough and regular accessibility testing using a variety of tools and methods.
- Automated testing tools help identify potential accessibility issues within the website code.
- Manual testing is performed by our accessibility experts to address nuanced accessibility concerns that automated tools might miss.
