As Mental Health Lead / Pastoral Lead

PLEX allows your mental health lead to safeguard learner’s wellbeing, reduce anxiety and nurture positive habits in and outside of the classroom. By 2025 every school in the UK will have a designated mental health or pastoral lead. The designated leader will be a trained staff member responsible for the school’s mental health approach. Your mental health lead will be able to use PLEX to spot the red flags within individual learners before they become major obstacles to their learning and progress.

License Owner (Institution)

The institution license owner is the individual school or organization to which a license and permission to use PLEX is given - effectively owning the license within the institution itself. Only one institution will be able to use PLEX on this license; no umbrella or sister schools can access the platform unless they explicitly seek permission from PLEX.

PLEX allows your parent community to be more engaged in the attainment and progress of their child while giving them the tools to play an active role in the learning process: With a greater, more in-depth understanding of their child’s intellectual and emotional needs. Allowing them to support their child’s at-home learning and school/home balance. Giving them the ability to check on their progress. Engaging in the parent assessment.
