Your questions answered…
Why can't I save my plans?
You will need to purchase a subscription to the full version of The 5 minute Lesson Plan if you wish to save your plans or go back and edit them later. The great news is, a personal licence only costs £36 for a whole year! Click to find out more…
What are the benefits of paying for a subscription?
With the Free Trial of The 5 Minute Lesson Plan available on this website, you can only create and download one-off lesson plans.
For the small price of £36 per year, you will have full access to The 5 Minute Lesson Plan, meaning you can save multiple lesson plans and build up a database of lessons. You will also be able to share plans with other teachers, search, organise, re-use, edit or download lesson plans from anywhere with an internet connection, at any time that suits you. Click to find out more…
Do you offer a subscription option for all teachers in a school?
Yes, we call this a Site Licence. An educational establishment can purchase a Site Licence and all of their staff will then have full access to The 5 Minute Lesson Plan. Please contact us for a quote, which is dependent on the type of school and number of users you require.
You may also want to consider upgrading to our Perspective School Improvement suite and take advantage of other features including lesson observations, professional standards, performance management, improvement planning, self evaluation as well as our innovative Watchsted module, including Ofsted inspector profiles!

My school already uses Perspective. Do I still need a subscription?
If your school already uses our Perspective school improvement suite, then existing users will automatically have access to the FREE version of The 5 Minute Lesson Plan tool. If your school has upgraded to include the FULL 5 Minute Lesson Plan module within Perspective, then you will not need to purchase your own personal subscription.
If your school already uses Perspective, but has not upgraded to include the FULL 5 Minute Lesson Plan module then you have 2 options:
1. You can purchase a Personal Licence to The 5 Minute Lesson Plan as a teacher for just £36 per year and build up your own online portfolio of accessible lesson plans. This account will be separate from any existing Perspective account.
2. You can tell your headteacher about how helpful you find our lesson planning tool, and ask them to request a Site Licence so that all staff can access the full benefits of The 5 Minute Lesson Plan.
Can I get access to any plans I made on the free site?
If you compiled a 5 Minute Lesson Plan on this site before purchasing a subscription, the information entered in the free trial version will not have automatically moved to your new account. Once logged in, please enter the information again and click save.
Can I request a new feature within The 5 Minute Lesson Plan?
As well as all the great features already included in the FULL version, Angel Solutions will continue to improve The 5 Minute Lesson Plan by adding extra features over time.
How will you use my data?
When you submit your details during the subscription process, this is only used to maintain your 5 Minute Lesson Plan account within Perspective. We will only email subscribers when necessary in direct relation to their account (for example, if your account is nearing expiry or to make you aware of planned maintenance disruptions). We will never sell your information on to a third party.
Still need help?
We do our best to respond to all requests made through this site. However, as this is a free-to-use service, we may not always have the resources to respond to help requests immediately. If you are having trouble with The 5 Minute Lesson Plan, please use our contact form to submit a support request and we will endeavour to respond to those we can help. We will continue to prioritise support requests from our paying subscribers before free users, while also continuing to develop The 5 Minute Lesson Plan tool within Perspective.
If you are an educational establishment, or group of educational establishments, and would like to know what our Perspective school improvement suite could do for you, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We can arrange for free demonstrations of our software and can tailor a bespoke package of features to meet your needs.
