National child measurement programme

The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) measures the height and weight of children in Reception class (aged 4 to 5) and year 6 (aged 10 to 11), to assess overweight and obesity levels in children within primary schools.  

Those children measured outside of healthy parameters are offered support and can be referred to the weight management programme.
