This website is run by the DfE Developer Hub. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • get from the start of the service to the end using speech recognition software
  • listen to the service using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We've also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
