- We don’t have a language translation tool on the website
- We have some pages where we link to different places using the same link text
- Some scanned documents do not comply with the accessibility regulations or are exempt (see list of exempt items further below) , these documents may be provided in a different format if it is possible for us to achieve, upon request.

- Leaflets to print and share (ie Food Allergen Recipe Sheets)

- Documents with content which cannot currently be published as HTML, these may include infographics, large tables or maps (ie Building Floor Plans, Projector Manual, Electric Piano Manual)
We are reviewing all PDF’s on our website to check if the content would be better published as an HTML webpage, making it more accessible and if that is not possible, we try to ensure that the PDF is fully accessible. We are aim to have all our site content conveyed in plain English and in a readable layout.
