Welcome to the Parents’ Zone. Here you will find various support services available to you. We will update the page regularly and aim to provide you with as much support as possible.

If you require any further information please get in touch with Mrs Hyland or Miss McKenna.


As part of our partnership with MGL World, we have been given access to a Computing parent portal. Through this parent portal, you are able to gain advice and assistance in regards to any computing matters which may affect your child or family. There are parent guides available for many apps. These explain what the app is, who its targeted audience is and any notes of caution for users and parents/carers. There is also the option to request an app review for any apps which your child is interested in, where a review is not currently available. There is also advice about how parental controls can be set up on devices and how this can be used to promote safe boundaries online for children. The parent portal does not require a login and can be accessed at https://mglworld.onlinesafetyhub.uk/parent/home

Through our link with MGL, we also have access to a parent app called Qustodio. Qustodio is a free app which helps to keep your child safe online, ensuring their digital activity is balanced and risk free. In addition, it helps parents supervise their way through filtering websites, setting time limits, blocking apps, getting reports and more. It also enables children to build a healthy relationship with technology. To access Qustodio, you will be required to sign up for a free account, which can be done through the link above and navigating to the main menu and the parent app tab.

Qustodio Family gives you everything you need to protect your children on their personal devices so they can flourish with technology, whether they’re at home, at school, or anywhere else.

  • Filter and block feature for content and apps
  • Visibility on browsing history, social media, and screen time
  • Time limits and screen-free schedules
  • Location tracking and panic button feature
  • Calls & messages tracking to monitor suspicious activity
  • Tailored reports and alerts for inappropriate content


 

Parent View

 

“Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.”

Parental Involvement at St Oswald’s School

We are very aware of the importance of parental involvement here at St Oswald’s and we love inviting parents and carers into school to share our learning. Last year we offered parents some fantastic opportunities to get involved in school life including; singing on a Christmas CD, extra-curricular activities such as parent/child guitar group, morning reading club, grandparent’s afternoon, arts and crafts workshops, games afternoons, parents vs children gameshows and much more!

This year we have exciting plans to continue our hard work with parental involvement and already parents have been busy celebrating creative week through Liverpool based singing and arts and crafts workshops with us. Reading club, after school clubs and activities, coffee mornings, fundraising events, school productions and an invitation to every parent in school from nursery to y6 to join their child in class to share their learning are just some of the great experiences and opportunities we offer parent and carers at St. Oswald’s Catholic Primary School.

The PTFA also contribute massively in arranging events such as school discos, Christmas fairs and shopping trips and other great events for children and parents. We would love even more parents/carers/grandparents to get involved in school life, so look out for upcoming events and come and share in our fantastic school life!
