What would you do? -constructive answers please ;-)

Youngest son is in year 6 getting ready for SATS at a v. small rural school (28 pupils in whole school) with an excellant SATS score. We've been sent a letter stating that from now until exams the year 6's (all 3 of them) will need to come into school to revise their mathematics work two days a week from 8am -8.45am. I do not think this is reasonable as my child does not function well in the morning, it will mean getting up an hour earlier (they normally start at 9am) and he finds it difficult to eat breakfast at 8.30 am let alone 7.30 am .
Am I just being a fussy mummy or should I refuse and ask for some revision for him to do after school at home ( I'm cr*p at math though so this might not help him) lol! I just feel this is being done more for the school than the pupils sake.

Disrupting a child's sleep patterns two days a week for the sake of Sats is ridiculous. What better way to put a child off education? Not easy to eat breakfast without being awake enough to do so. An important start to the day.
But what do I know? Only a mother, grandmother and retired teacher.
