Gooseberry Parent

Gooseberry Parent is an app which allows parents and carers to see how their child is scoring within the games. It includes a resource area with an advice sheet related to each lesson as well as information about popular apps and online games.

Most of children’s online activity takes place at home and Gooseberry Parent helps parents and carers to understand the issues, discuss them knowledgeably and be part of their child’s learning journey.

Like most life skills, online safety education needs to be addressed regularly and the app helps parents to be part of this process advising of the risks, suggesting protective strategies and providing conversation starters. Children often don’t tell if they are bullied, groomed or upset by content online, so parents are encouraged to be aware and to initiate conversations with their child.
The app is available to download free of charge for parents of schools who subscribe to the Gooseberry School programme.
