Secure data sharing between schools to support Year 6 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 cancelled KS2 SATs and assessments.

We know this is an important stage for pupils and exceptional circumstances in 2020 and 2021 mean usual procedures don’t apply. SixIntoSeven is a fast, simple way to help schools, teachers and pupils in these challenging times. Read our testimonials.

Why transition is important this year

What are the timescales?

Following a successful pilot in 2020, the team at ASCL and askEddi are working hard to get SixIntoSeven ready for schools to use for Year 6 transition in 2021.

SixIntoSeven for Year 6 transition works to bring together partnerships, MATs and individual schools to unify the transmission of pupil progress information.

School leaders, transition leads and education leads can register their interest now to be first to hear when we launch.

Get ready for your new Year 7 pupils

SixIntoSeven is back in 2021 for schools to share information during Year 6 transition. Sign up now to be the first to hear when we launch in February.

Simple, secure, cost-effective

Getting started is easy. Secondary schools either pay a one-off fee or as part of their annual Open Data Project Membership. There’s no charge for primary schools.

We have simple guides to help you get started and a support team on call to help.

SixIntoSeven complies to GDPR/DPA regulations from the outset, we have worked with ASCL’s 3rd party DPO and legal team to achieve this. Each school will be required to sign a Data Processing & Sharing Agreement and T&C’s to access and use the system.

SixIntoseven 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.

Duncan Baldwin
Deputy Policy Director, ASCL

The conversation between primary and secondary is crucial in helping children get the best start in year 7.

Secondary teaching that picks up from where primary left off instils confidence. SixIntoSeven can be an important tool as part of this conversation.

John Camp
Trust Leader, The Compass Partnership of Schools

This year we don’t have the KS2 information that we normally rely on so SixIntoSeven is a real safety net for us. It means we won’t have to start what’s already been a very difficult year for new Year 7 pupils testing them because we already have really useful information on their progress.

Carolyn Roberts
Head Teacher, Thomas Tallis School, Greenwich

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.

David Waugh
Head Teacher, Poynton High School
Vice President, ASCL

It has been a privilege to work with school leaders across the UK to design and develop the SixIntoSeven solution. Together we can ensure that primary schools are confident that the professional judgements made will have a positive impact on learning for new Year 7's.
