What is Gooseberry Planet?

Gooseberry Planet is an award-winning educational software platform designed to educate children, teachers and parents about online safety. It comprises four products: Gooseberry Play, Gooseberry Guru and two e-learning CPD courses on Safeguarding and the Prevent Duty.

Gooseberry Play provides ready-made resources to enable schools to teach online safety to 5-13 year olds. It uses game-based learning as part of a comprehensive package of teaching resources including digital workbooks and short online games to reinforce teaching and make learning fun. It helps schools meet their statutory obligations and delivers detailed results to prove compliance.​

There are 60 lessons in 5 different age levels. These are designed around scenarios which children may face online and are mapped against the online safety aspects of the computing, RSE & Health curricula and the UKCIS framework Education for a connected world.

Why should I use Gooseberry Planet?

Gooseberry Play enables schools to proactively meet their responsibilities to teach online safety, helping to identify areas where pupils lack knowledge and prevent problems before they arise. Comprehensive results enable teachers to assess their class’s learning, identify vulnerabilities and provide evidence for inspections. Ready-made lesson plans and slide decks empower non-specialists to deliver lessons in areas they may not otherwise feel confident about. No marking is required thanks to digital workbooks and online games. A handy app provides advice for parents linked to each lesson and encourages them to be part of the learning process.

Schools and parents both have responsibilities to teach children about online safety, but many are not confident about doing so. With new apps, games and social media sites evolving at a rapid rate, it can be challenging to keep up with emerging risks.

In this digital age, where children have devices at their fingertips from a young age and often use them unsupervised, developing the knowledge and strategies to stay safe online is an essential life skill. Education needs to start young and to be delivered regularly throughout their schooling to help them develop the digital resilience needed to cope with online risks and challenges.

Gooseberry Alerts contain practical e-safety tips and information for you to share amongst your school community. We keep on top of the latest e-safety research, trending apps and online risks to enable you to be informed and prepared. ​

Free of Charge

Gooseberry Alerts are free of charge for all UK schools. They are sent monthly and cover a range of e-safety topics.

Stay Up to Date

We focus on what is happening in the online space, to help keep online issues topical and relevant.

Start a Conversation

What Do Our Clients Say?

Gooseberry Planet was designed by education and online safety specialists to provide teachers with a ready-made solution to enable them to equip children with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate the online world safely and responsibly.
"The new platform is working well and the children continue to enjoy the game as well as resources. We particularly like having the option to download the results and track each child closely in order to identify those at risk, whilst parents are appreciating the fortnightly advice!"
Clare Rogers
Little Chalfont Primary School
"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."
Jenny Condron
British International School, Freetown
"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."
