Website Styles

Our website has been designed to be bright, fun and easy to use but if you would prefer there are different styles you can view it through:

Dyslexia Friendly View
This view uses colours and styles in the main content box that are dyslexia friendly.

Images and Alt Tags
Whenever images have been used within the design of the site “Alt” tags have been used.  This will show describe what the image is, incase an image does not load, image options are switched off in your browser or you are using a screen reader.

Re-sizable Text
We have used a text size that we feel is easy to use, but if you would like to increase or decrease it there is the option to do this using the text size icons.
