The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Friern Barnet 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 and exemptions listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:
Some images, linked images, form labels, and buttons may be missing alternative text used by screen readers to interpret. These fail the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
Some links contain no text to describe the function or target of the link. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose in context).
Certain text may be of low contrast against background colours. This fails the WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (Contrast minimum).
To fix these issues requires an upgrade of our content management system and full rebuild of our website. We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make accessibility standards part of the scope of the project when we next replace our website.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
