I admit I am not as familiar with SATs as I am with GCSE Access Arrangements but I did recently look this up for a primary colleague.
Key Stage 2 Assessment
Extra time See page 21 where there is a chart and pages 26 and 27 for information about end of Key Stage tests.
Unfortunately, you have to apply by 27th February for extra time.
Just read the book to see what you need to do with other year groups. One way round the extra time thing is to get them to do it for the time, draw a line and see how much more they can do with extra time. Parents and you can then see if it is helpful.

Subject: [Senco-forum] extra time in tests and exams
I am getting in a muddle with this - please does anyone have any straight forward advice about how much extra time can be given in end of KS1 and KS2 SATS and who is entitled to extra time, scribes and readers. In end of term tests who is allowed extra time and readers? For instance a child in Year 5 with a diagnosis of dyslexia - are they automatically allowed extra time in Literacy tests and what about Numeracy (if that is also mentioned as a concern in report). A particular child in school wasn't given any additional time in a class test and parents think she should have been. I want to straighten it all out and come up with guidelines for all teachers to understand which of their children need additional time etc.
Please help or point me to straightforward information on internet.
