Secure data sharing between schools to support Year 6 to Year 7 transition
SixIntoSeven is an easy to use, secure web portal for primary and secondary schools to support the transition of pupils from Year 6 to Year 7.
Using a professional judgement dashboard, primary and secondary schools will share information on pupils, in lieu of SATs and assessments.
We know this is an important stage for pupils and exceptional circumstances in 2020 mean usual procedures don’t apply. SixIntoSeven is a fast, simple way to help schools, teachers and pupils in these challenging times.
Get ready for your new Year 7 pupils
We’ll be launching the project on 8th June 2020, giving you time to gather, input and use the data.
To use SixIntoSeven there is a small administration fee of £125 per secondary school (no charge for primary schools) which will be payable as part of the registration process on our portal. We are grateful to ASCL’s Educational Development Trust for funding the initial costs of building the portal.
SixIntoSeven is a GDPR compliant rapid response project to support schools with primary into secondary school transition in a time of uncertainty with many unexpected challenges. The project is a collaboration between ASCL, School Leaders across the country and askEddi, through the forum of the Open Data Project for Schools.
Primary and Secondary schools working together
How SixIntoSeven works:
Developed by School Leaders
ASCL are unleashing the power that data has in helping us support children. Collaborating with primary schools on their Year 6 to Year 7 transition means that the data will be readily accessible so our teachers can focus on planning, teaching, and providing personalised support.

Schools will gain a huge amount from using the SixIntoSeven portal. The system does all of the heavy lifting by matching and organising the data, so schools will be able to focus on providing pupils with the best introduction to secondary school at the start of the new term.
