Child weight management

The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) is an annual programme to measure the height and weight of all children in Reception and Year 6. The information is used to help the NHS and local authorities plan and provide better health services for children.

Most areas are now sharing each child’s individual results with parents, along with Change4Life tips and an invitation to parents to contact their local NHS if they want to discuss the results or get further advice. Sharing a child’s results with the parents gives them the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their child’s health.
