Would the use of the on screen keyboard avoid any keylogger trojan getting information

Yes it would TBofEB. Whenever I log in to my bank, or enter my account details online, I always use the onboard keyboard. As the keylogger name suggests, it is logging what you type via the keyboard not what your mouse is doing.

I'm the same, always use the screen keyboard for bank use, I also only use a wired connection for bank details and ordering with credit card, I don't trust wireless, WPA2 encryption or not for those type of transactions. It might seem paranoid but better being safe than sorry.

Another thing to be aware of is the use of a wireless keyboard, the encryption on them is next to useless compared to the WPA2 encryption for say a notebook to router connection. you can be typing away and someone next door can be watching everything you type with the right sort of software/hardware.
