This website has been designed to be accessible to all web users, irrespective of individual abilities and browser type. This statement gives information about accessibility features, and levels of conformance to industry standards.

Text Size

The text on this website has been styled using a non-fixed value in a style sheet. This means that users can easily change the text size using their browser settings. To do this go to the ‘View’ menu of your internet browser, select ‘Text Size’, then change it from the default size of ‘Medium’ to the size that suits your needs.

Classes List View

The list view on the class overview page is easier to read and still provides the same information, except for mobile where the age criteria is dropped due to space, the age criteria is still on individual class pages.

Contrast Of Colour

The colour on the pages have a good ratio of contrast to present information clearly to the user, this use of contrast is continued throughout the site.


Accessing downloadable documents such as reports and committee papers.

A number of documents are available for download from this website. To view PDF files you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your computer. This software is available free of charge from the Adobe website. Users with visual impairments who make use of text to speech software may encounter problems when using PDF files. The website provides tools and information to help make Adobe PDF files accessible to users with visual disabilities.

Wherever possible, we provide RTF files as an alternative to PDFs. RTF files are readable with most current word-processors. Please note that the RTF files may not maintain the original formatting and layout of document and that images – pictures, maps, graphs, logos – are removed. RTF files may be larger than PDFs and therefore slower to download.
