The Department for Education has created its website with the aim of making it accessible to the widest range of users, regardless of disability, or the device they use to view it.
Our website complies with the Web Accessibility Initiative’s (WAI) web content accessibility guidelines 2.0, as required under the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). We are ‘double A’ compliant.
Our site displays correctly in current browsers, and by using standards compliant with HTML/CSS code, any future browsers and devices will also display it correctly.
