All adults in school are trained in our safeguarding procedures and are aware of what to do if they are concerned about a child. Click the link below to read our Safeguarding policy.

Online Safety at St Oswald's

At St Oswald's we use the ProjectEvolve Online Safety toolkit as our Online Safety Curriculum. The toolkit resources each of the 330 statements from UK Council for Internet Safety's (UKCIS) framework Education for a Connected World with perspectives; research; activities; outcomes; supporting resources and professional development materials. 

Children will meet lessons on these strands, learning skills in online etiquette, identifying risk and what to do when they feel worried or upset when online.
