The process for schools to apply for additional time / early opening of test papers for children sitting Key Stage 2 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 14 April, 2014
Local authorities will no longer consider applications for additional time.
