We have tried to ensure that this website is available to as broad an audience as possible.
The size of the text on this website is set in qualitative rather than quantitative terms. Your web browser can override the base text size and all of the text will change relative to the size you specify.
This is easily demonstrated using Microsoft Internet Explorer’s ‘Text Size’ option: to increase the size of the text select ‘View’ -> ‘Text Size’ -> ‘Largest’: this increases the size of all the text proportionally. (You can similarly change the text size to make it smaller). The default setting is ‘Medium’.
In Mozilla Firefox you should select View > Text size followed by ‘Increase’ or ‘Decrease’. To return the text size to its default setting, select ‘Normal’.
Changing the base text size whilst browsing this website may impact upon its layout: the site has been designed to ‘flow’ to fill the browser window (to make use of the extra space available at higher screen resolutions) but increasing text size to a very large value will cause some page elements to overlap.
For more detailed information about how to change the fonts and font sizes in your web browser you can visit the BBC My Web My Way website
Images on our website have alternative text attributes (alt text). This means when an image is used on a webpage to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. Therefore, the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers.
If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.
We don’t provide translated copy on our website, but the Google Translate tool can help – we’ll be launching this on 18 September so look out for the button at the top of the site. Some web browsers, such as Google Chrome, also have automatic translation tools. (We can’t guarantee the accuracy of the translated text)
You may access and use this website if you agree to be legally bound by the terms set out below. If you do not agree to be legally bound by those terms please do not access and/or use www.schoolhealth.cnwl.nhs.uk

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Central and Northwest London NHS Foundation Trust 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 ‘the non-compliances listed below.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some text does not have a sufficient contrast ratio, so it may be hard to read for some users. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.4.3 (contrast).
Some parts of the site are not highlighted when they receive focus, so some people may find it hard to navigate. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.47 (focus visible).
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.
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 to additional resources and guidance.
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 any related link or resource on our pages.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
