Website Accessibility Statement
Accessibility Statement for https://www.hopeprojectschools.co.uk
This accessibility statement applies to the https://www.hopeprojectschools.co.uk website.
This website is run by The Hope Project CIC. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- View the website comfortably on mobile devices, tablets and personal computers.
- Zoom in using your browser’s zoom functionality and still be able to access the site fully.
- Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.
- Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.
- Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).
We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
We aim to comply with WCAG 2.1 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines A standards, while complying with as many of the AA and AAA standards as possible.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible this website is
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- The contrast ratio between our company colours and WCAG 2.1 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) recommendations is non-compliant but accessible to 99% of users.
- You cannot modify the line height or spacing of text.
- Most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software.
- Embedded videos do not have captions (We do not have control over third party videos).
- Some of our online forms are difficult to navigate using just a keyboard. We use a HoneyPot spam protection which adds hidden fields which must be ignored to complete our contact forms (They are clearly labelled to screen readers but must be left empty to beat the spam protection).
- You cannot skip to the main content when using a screen reader.
- Some minor HTML and CSS inconsistencies with the guidance provided by WCAG 2.1 A standards.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website
We are always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page, or think we are not meeting accessibility requirements: Contact Rachel Rayner, Director at The Hope Project. Please call 07962 229206 or email: email@example.com. A message will be passed to our website provider for advice.
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 are not happy with how we respond to your complaint you may contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
https://www.hopeprojectschools.co.uk is designed and hosted by Think Jarvis Design and Marketing. While Think Jarvis do not actively claim compliance with WCAG 2.1 standards, The Hope Project website, under testing meets 95.9% of the requirements for WCAG 2.1 A standards and is partially compliant with AA and AAA standards.
The Hope Project CIC are responsible for raising any specific accessibility issues with their web developer so that changes can be implemented in a timely manner.
Any third-party content like our Eventbrite and Zoom event pages and embeds are outside of our control. These are services provided by a third-party – limiting our ability to edit their design.
PDF documents hosted on this website have not been checked for accessibility.
Any third party hosted videos – The Hope Project is not responsible for adding captions to videos held on platforms like YouTube or Vimeo.
The website is built on a highly customisable framework/page builder system. The site is set to the highest level of compliance available from the provider. Any remaining issues such as background contrast, minor ARIA issues and unique element issues will be extremely difficult for us to resolve in a cost-effective manner.
We have no plans to amend any system-level issues unless specific requests are made for a higher level of accessibility.
Content that is 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 on how users can access our services and forms published as Word documents.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix our audit reports.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
Since the launch of our current website, we have enabled the highest level of conformance with WCAG 2.1 available within the system. The site has also been tested against Google Web Vitals for Speed, Design, SEO and Accessibility; scoring 90+ in all areas for 99% of design cases on this website.
We have no specific plans to further our compliance with WCAG 2.1 unless a specific request is made for a higher level of compliance.

It is well documented that results of Web Vitals tests vary due to server response time, time of day and whether the test actually completes properly. We recommend running the test 2-3 times taking the highest result as the most accurate result.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Google Analytics Cookies on this website use the following names:
The cookies named __utma through __utmz come from websites that use Google Analytics, which primarily uses it to track visits.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:
(1) to track you as you navigate our website;
(2) to analyse the use of our website;
__utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link)
__utma stores each user’s amount of visits, and the time of the first visit, the previous visit, and the current visit (presumably partly for double checking of this information).
__utmb and __utmc are used to check approximately how long you stay on a site: when a visit starts, and approximately ends (c expires quickly). If you look at cookie state changes (e.g. using firecookie), you will see these change regularly.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
On your first visit to our website, a privacy notice will appear at the bottom of the window. Click on learn more. You will be given the option to turn off/on marketing related cookies.
