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.


The Full 5 Minute Plan tool — with all its additional formatting, customisation and sharing features — can be combined with multiple additional benefits through our linked tools, Perspective Lite and Perspective School Leadership Toolkit.

Over 10,000 schools & children's centres already use Perspective Lite!
