The process for schools to apply for additional time for children sitting KS2 SATs has changed. Schools should use the ‘Access Arrangements’ section of the NCA tools website to respond to a short series of questions about the child. The
questions will draw on teachers’ knowledge of children and their ability to assess an individual child’s levels and corresponding access needs. Applications must be submitted by
14th April, 2014
Local authorities will no longer consider applications for additional time.
