In autumn last year, we announced that the key stage 2 English reading test would be administered on Tuesday of test week, not Monday as in previous years. This was in response to views expressed about the order of the tests from headteachers and teachers during the 2017 primary assessment consultation.
|Monday 14 May
||English grammar, punctuation and spelling
||Paper 1: questions and Paper 2: spelling
|Tuesday 15 May
|Wednesday 16 May
||Paper 1: arithmetic and Paper 2: reasoning
|Thursday 17 May

As you are aware, opening test packs early on the wrong day can lead to maladministration investigations, so please share this message with any colleagues involved in the administration of the KS2 tests this year.
