Six into Seven Transition Portal for all schools

Together with Hounslow schools, we have developed a bespoke digital transition service to support the best transitions possible for children moving from primary to secondary schools.

  • Modernise our way of working
  • Reduce administration and manual input
  • Add security and GDPR compliance

Significant improvements have been made to the portal, since the start of this project, including:

  • The pre-upload of year 6 pupils from the council's data team
  • A separate SEND area with an option to flag pupils who need further discussion with the secondary school
How does it work?

Each school will be required to sign into the portal and register their school to accept the new Data Sharing and Processing Agreement and the Licence Agreement.

Follow the steps below to make sure that your school can use the portal and the right staff members have access.

Step 1: Sign Agreements - both primary and secondary

Provide details of your transition lead who will then receive an email to sign-in and confirm their email address.

Step 2: Additional Users - both primary and secondary

The transition lead will be responsible for:

  • Managing the transition activities
  • Assigning additional users, eg SENDCos

Each new user will receive an email from ''  with instructions.

Step 3: Data Entry - primary

Hounslow council will upload Year 6 pupils for Primary schools to start transition data information. Schools will be informed once this is completed.

Step 4: Secondary School Allocation - secondary

Hounslow council will upload Year 6 pupils secondary school allocation for Secondary schools to start receiving data and sending connection requests to out-of-borough feeder schools. Schools will be informed once this is completed.

Ofsted Inspection Training – "Four days well spent! Supporting the development of our school under the guidance of a skilled trainer with a wealth of experience across the primary range was invaluable."

Primary Subject Networks – "The content in the sessions covers all aspects of high quality practice in Maths and it makes me reflective on my practice in class and how I lead and help develop other teachers."

Primary Subject Networks – "Meeting other subject leaders and sharing, makes me feel better about what we are delivering and that we are on the right track."

Develop your A level Teaching – "It was really nice to be able to talk to other A level German teachers as there aren’t very many and we could share our experiences."

Contingent Talk with Books – "Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes. Well-planned and organised project, fantastic expert who inspires us all."

Get Hounslow Reading – “There can be no doubt of the enthusiasm of Hounslow teachers and impact of their hard work on growing a Reading for Pleasure practice in their schools over this academic year. Many teachers said that the time to talk and share practice was what they valued most highly.” Charlotte Raby – Programme Facilitator

Secondary Subject Networks – “I really enjoy the content and the supportive group of fellow geography leaders discussing ideas in a non-judgmental, relatively informal way. The group certainly helps each other and fundamentally discusses relevant topics which are benefiting me.”

Get Hounslow Reading – "Very informative and helpful. A lovely chance to reflect. Excellent, enthusiastic delivery which would inspire anyone! You are very knowledgeable and sessions are well-organised. Thank you!”
