Compliance status

This website is fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.2 AA standard.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

We have not identified any areas of the website that are non-compliant with the regulations and are not otherwise covered by exemptions. If you find an issue that we have yet to identify, please contact us using one of the routes described in the ‘Reporting accessibility problems with this website’ section of this statement.

While the LZ is compliant, external resources that you may be pointed to resources that may not be compliant – such as resources developed by external organisations. In the event you experience resources that are not compliant by external organisations, accessibility concerns should be directed towards them. You will find their email on the organisation’s webpage which can be found on the resource pages.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

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. For example, we do not plan to fix Supporting Digital Learning PDF cards.

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

3rd party content

Some of our services include third party content which we have no control over such as external resources you are directed to that are not produced by the SSSC. The accessibility regulations do not require us to manage these kinds of content, but if you have a problem with any of the content hosted on this website, please contact us using the methods above and we will try to help.

Video content

We do not plan to add captions to resources that contain live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations. We also have some existing pre-recorded video content that was published before the 23rd September 2020. This content is also exempt from the regulations. All new video content we produce will have appropriate captions, audio descriptions and transcripts as necessary.
