Frequently asked questions

All about SixIntoSeven

Who can use SixIntoSeven?

SixIntoSeven can be used by any group of schools. Most customers are Local Authorities, but we also welcome customers from MATs and other groups. 

What sort of information can be transferred?

The simple answer is almost anything. This can include yes/no statements, selections from drop down menus and free text boxes. You can upload any files such as PDFs and even leave voice messages. The information can be on anything deemed to be important. 

We have our own transition priorities. Will these be affected?

Our team will work with you to meet your priorities. Some groups focus only on SEND and vulnerable pupils, whilst others look to the whole cohort. Whatever you decide, our team will be able to advise you, based on their experience of supporting transitions across many Local Authorities and groups.

What happens when a primary school sends a pupil to a secondary school in another Local Authority or group?

Our aim is to enable primary schools to upload their data and information on a pupil once, and only onto one system. Therefore, if one of their Y6 pupils is moving to a school outside of the group, then that secondary will be invited to load SixIntoSeven Lite. This is a free to use service and has the full functionality as the paid for version. The only difference is that the secondary school cannot send out requests to other primary schools. This is safer than using email, as the transaction will take place within SixIntoSeven’s GDPR complaint framework.

What happens if a secondary school receives pupils from a primary school in another local authority?

A secondary school within a SixIntoSeven group or Local Authority can send a request to a primary school anywhere in the country. The primary school will be able to upload information and data on the pupils going to that secondary school and send it in a GDPR-complaint form. 

Is SixIntoSeven safe to use?

SixIntoSeven is owned by 6into7, which trades as Pupil Pathways. Pupil Pathways has the globally recognized ISO 27001 standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) and the Cyber Essentials Certification.
