The template allows browser-based font resizing, making sure that site visitors can enlarge the font size without breaking the page layout in any way.

We believe that it is important to make our website accessible to all potential users. With this in mind we have worked hard to improve the website for people with all disabilities and impairments. We have ensured the availability of "alt text", a simple and clear approach to online layout and improved colour contrast.

Our site works well in text-only browsers and fits the criteria for people with visual impairment. Additionally, great care is taken when designing new pages to ensure that navigation is simple, links are accurate and images are clear. We try to ensure that articles on the site are written in plain English in order that people of all ages and abilities can easily read the content.

This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

It is structured with valid 1.0 Strict XHTML and semantic markup. Cascading style sheets are used for visual layout. Both are validated as by the W3C Markup Validation Services.

All pages are WCAG AAA approved, complying with all priority 1 and 2 and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. This is a judgemental call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We hope that this makes the site accessible to as many users as possible but we recognise the need to continue to improve in this area.

“Magic Carpet has delivered interactive performances annually for over seven years at our school. In addition they have provided performance workshops in circus skills to pupils and staff. A key benefit is that children who do not have access to theatre experiences in their home life can experience them at first hand, and at close quarters. Having the opportunity to see drama practitioners at work, and be invited to join in!, has helped raise the profile of performance drama in the school. The children’s familiarity with Magic Carpet Theatre Company means that staff can remind them of the stage skills modeled when they are rehearsing performances of their own. The circus workshops have been delivered to both Key Stages 1 and 2. as well as giving teachers the opportunity to develop their own skills by working alongside and learning from professional practitioners, they promoted spirit of co-operation and help raise children’s confidence levels. Above all Magic Carpet Theatre inspire children to enjoy drama and performance, reminding us all that the arts can be fun as well as thought-provoking and educational.”
