School senior leaders Corrine Penhale and Kirstie Moat from Red Kite Learning Trust tell us why SixIntoSeven is crucial for their Year 6 transition this year.
The Red Kite Learning Trust consists of 13 primary and secondary schools in North and West Yorkshire. Working as a Multi Academy Trust, the Red Kite approach is to value the differences and encourage the special and unique elements that each school offers to their different communities.
Starting in May 2020, schools within the trust have been pivotal to the development of SixIntoSeven and have played a big part in making this Year 6 to Year 7 transition tool available to schools across the UK in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, closure of schools and cancellation of KS2 SATs.
Associate Headteacher Kirstie Moat of Harrogate Grammar School and Corrine Penhale of Rossett Acre Primary tell our Marketing Manager Sarah how their group of schools have been working together through SixIntoSeven and why they would recommend all schools take part for the benefit of their Year 7 intake.
