Cross Phase – Year 6 to Year 7 Transition


SixIntoSeven is a GDPR compliant rapid response project to support schools with primary into secondary school transition. The project is a collaboration between ASCL, School Leaders across the country and askEddi, through the forum of the Open Data Project for Schools.

  • Developed in 2020 to improve data quality and transfer between primary and secondary schools, while facilitating a conversation about pupil progress and attainment.
  • Allows primaries to assess each child on a level playing field and take into account primary progress as a whole rather than a marker on the day of an exam
  • All schools sign a data agreement and agree to strict T&Cs
The story so far ...
  • HEP has existing transition processes for Year 6 to Year 7
  • Conveys pupil information between primary and secondary 
  • Includes pastoral and wellbeing information
  • Does not cover attainment or assessment data
  • Removal of SATs scores leaves a gap (due to SATs being cancelled in 2021)
  • HEP have discussed using the basic SixintoSeven system and building in the additional requirements of the HEP spreadsheet from last year
  • Provides us with a fully trackable web-based solution that will reduce workload, allow each secondary school to track who has completed/uploaded data.
  • Provides a simple user interface for primary to upload professional judgements and draws other requested data from the primary Managed Information System (MIS)
  • Funded from the primary to secondary transition funding held by HEP so at no cost to schools

“From one professional to another for the benefit of the child”.


What our members say

Meet the Expert – Art Workshop – "Good delivery and alternative resource options provided. There were clear explanations and questions to ask children were also provided."

Middle Leader Training – "Very inspiring leaders who answered all questions without making you feel at all silly. Loved it."

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – "I so enjoyed the course. It made me realise how much I have to do in History, but so reassuring to have someone who knows what he is talking about!"

Develop your A Level Teaching – "Collaboration is a huge part of this project; CPD and teacher training works best when you’re doing it alongside colleagues. The 4 HEP principles make it clear to teachers what the bare bones of an excellent lesson look like."
