Giving pupils the best possible start

SixIntoSeven is a digital platform which gives pupils the best possible start as they move from Year 6 to Year 7.

Through collaboration between schools, transition information is shared early and in a consistent format, so a secondary school can meet the needs of each individual pupil from day one. We call this a personalised transition.

Our GDPR compliance gives you peace of mind every step of the way

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

We promote collaboration between schools

With SixIntoSeven there is a seamless transition of information. This means secondary schools can welcome Year 7 with targeted academic and pastoral planning place on day one of the new academic year.

“When I arrived at secondary school, I was nervous but my new form teacher knew lots about me and that made it so much easier to settle in.”

We enable the transfer of vital information in a consistent format

Every data point is purposeful and gives schools ownership over the information transferred.

“We receive personalised information for every child, even from different local authorities. This makes planning for the Year 7 intake so much easier.”

Our data compliance means you can focus on your pupils and not on GDPR

We have implemented the advice of Derbyshire County Council’s well regarded Data Protection for Schools organisation and have gained the Cyber Essentials mark from the UK government’s National Cyber Security Centre.

“As a SENDCo I am always looking for ways to ensure a smooth transition without the worries associated with transferring sensitive pupil data. Flagging children who may need extra support is simple and safe with SixIntoSeven.”
