What is Independent Schools OnStream?

Enabling Online Expertise

Independent Schools

Thank you for your interest in our independent schools portal OnStream which has been developed in response to feedback that schools are looking for easy ways to ensure they are kept up to date with changes in the law and best practice.

Independent schools have free access to OnStream which brings together in one place our legal solutions, know-how and resources for you to access at any time that suits you.

Content is categorised for ease of use and includes FAQs, guidance and templates including our entire suite of safer recruitment documentation and KCSIE e-quiz. We cover a variety of topics and expect more to evolve as we identify and respond to areas you need us to address.

  • KCSIE Part 1 eLearning Module
  • Compliance Toolkit
  • Employment solutions
  • Safer recruitment
  • Safeguarding governance
  • Child Student visa compliance essentials
  • Salary sacrifice for school fees
  • Regulatory policies
  • Data protection
  • Parent contract
  • Incident management
  • Independent inquiry into child sexual abuse
  • School fees and debt recovery

All content is updated by our lawyers to keep you informed of the latest law and best practice and we will notify you when new content and resources have been added.

We also offer premium paid for content via OnStream. If your school has purchased any of our premium content such as the Compliance Toolkit or Safeguarding Governance materials, you can access these online and download the latest versions.

Over 600 schools are already making use of this portal.
