“Our Digital Leaders have really enjoyed piloting Gooseberry Planet and have been introducing the resource to the other classes and it has received a positive response from teachers and pupils alike. Pupils from P4-7 have shown great enthusiasm towards the Gooseberry Planet game and have been becoming quite competitive! The game allows children to have fun whilst also learning about E-Safety through questions they need to answer as the game progresses. We have used the game as a follow-up after our main lesson/activity. Gooseberry Planet provides a range of differentiated lesson plans and worksheets covering a wide variety of E-Safety issues, such as Junk Email, Passwords, Online Security, Sexting, Location Sharing, Keeping Healthy Online etc. On the whole, a great E-Safety resource for pupils and teachers alike”-

“Gooseberry Planet is an exciting game based tool for promoting e safety. It has given our children the opportunity to participate in a range of differentiated games while at the same time developing their knowledge of how to keep safe on line. The resource is supported by materials and detailed lesson plans for teachers and is suitable for use across the school. Our pupils are really enjoying using it.”-

“We are only in the early stages of using this platform but have already seen a big impact across the school community. The children are engaged by the gamification and are having much more informed discussions regarding e-safety. The parent body has welcomed the practical information, as well as the rise in profile for this ever-changing topic, and staff have appreciated the wealth of resources, which are constantly updated”.

“The kids are loving Gooseberry Planet. The worksheets spar on great discussion topics and help us explore the topic further. They also enjoy playing the games and finding all the gems and family members. I think this is an amazing program that dives into the important topics of online safety in a child-friendly way.”

“The game has definitely made the children more aware of what can and cannot be removed from the internet. The biggest news to children was the one about selfies! We have also looked at location settings and many have gone home and changed this on their phones etc. Some pupils are still accepting ‘friends’ from friends and we have had many discussions about this, what is and isn’t ok. I think that the children are certainly more aware about talking to people online.”

“I taught my first lesson of Gooseberry Planet today with Year 5 and they loved it!”

School I’ve had my first feedback today, so I thought I’d pass it on. It was from an SLD child’s teacher: “He loved playing the game and was able to get the characters to jump and move along – meanwhile the staff couldn’t figure it out! Ha-h! He was shouting ‘put picture online, Facebook’ showing an awareness of social media but not the dangers. This gave the teacher a great opportunity to speak about the dangers. It would be great if there was an option of the questions being read aloud.”

Gooseberry Planet is a great resource to use in class. The pupils enjoy learning by playing the game. All the resources are easily available and save time when planning lessons or e-safety workshops.”

“I feel it is a great programme and it really teaches about the dangers out there on the internet. With more and more children spending time online, this is a great programme that can be used to raise awareness and with the support of parents, children will be protected from dangers that may arise as well as teaching them about protecting themselves from online scams, threats and other issues that could affect their identity.”

“We just wanted to share with you our recent Ofsted report as it makes specific reference to E-safety. The Ofsted inspectors were very impressed with the way in which the students could speak about Esafety and this is down to the work that you have done with the students, staff and parents – thank you so much.”

“Far more interesting than people coming in and having talks with us”

More interesting sitting down and talking to kids through game-based learning and having them taught about online safety at the same time.
