Primary to Secondary (KS2 – KS3) Transition Portal

Our consultation with education professionals told us that there was no standardised approach to Primary to Secondary School transition, with no one system to send transition data from Primary Schools to Secondary Schools. The Primary to Secondary School Transition Portal provides the opportunity for Local Education Authorities to standardise the transition process and ensure that pupil information is communicated effectively between Primary and Secondary schools.

How does the Transition Portal work?

Through a series of regular uploads, the Local Authority Admissions team can create pupil records and assign them to their feeder Primary and destination Secondary Schools.  Primary Schools are then able to complete key information about their pupils, ensuring that Secondary Schools have a fully comprehensive dataset on the pupils due to transition to them.  Secondary Schools are able to track which pupil profiles are complete, communicate with feeder Primary Schools and print reports ready to welcome pupils in the next school year.

Fully compliant with GDPR and Data Protection (2018), the Primary to Secondary Transition Portal provides a secure means to transfer pupil data between schools. In contrast to other platforms, School Transition focuses not on children as data, but instead gives a picture of the whole child and opens up conversations between schools.
