SixIntoSeven is working for schools across the UK to help primary and secondary schools communicate pupil progress information as part of Year 6 to Year 7 transition
We know that in 2020 schools are now faced with the challenge of not having any KS2 data to share about the level of progress achieved by Year 6 pupils on the eve of lockdown. In the absence of SATs and formal assessment, we put together a rapid-response tool to help facilitate a “conversation” between schools.
As SixIntoSeven does not use the language of the primary national curriculum, schools have told us that this raises questions about how to approach this new way of assessing progress.
We talked to the school leaders and policy experts who came together to create a list of the core areas that secondary schools think about when it comes to planning for Year 7, in a language that both primary and secondary schools can understand.
Watch how SixIntoSeven can help your school’s transition, in their own words.
It’s not too late to join SixIntoSeven!
We spoke to Amanda Thornton-Jones, Primary School Improvement Director at the Red Kite Learning Trust, about how schools across their trust are using SixIntoSeven to help with Year 6 to Year 7 transition this year, and why it’s not too late for primary schools to take part.
School Leaders recommend SixIntoSeven
Neil Renton, Head Teacher at Harrogate Grammar School tells us why SixIntoSeven has been an important part of his school’s preparation for their Year 7 intake this year.
The importance of a successful transition
Carolyn Roberts, Head Teacher at Thomas Tallis School in Greenwich, talks to our Marketing Manager Sarah about how they have worked closely with feeder primaries using SixIntoSeven. Facilitating conversations between Year 6 teachers and the destination secondary schools is pivotal, particularly this year when there will be no KS2 data at all to share.
Watch our webinar with ASCL’s Deputy Director of Policy, Duncan Baldwin, as he explains how SixIntoSeven came about and how it will benefit schools.
