The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) measures the height and weight of children in Reception and Year 6 in schools across England. The information collected allows services to plan how to support families to lead healthy lives.
A specially trained member of the Healthy Child Programme will attend your child’s school to carry out the measurements.
If you are concerned about your child’s weight or eating habits and feel you need support, you can contact the Healthy Child Programme by calling Just One Number on 0300 300 0123 or texting Parentline on 07520 631590. Our opening hours are 8am-6pm Monday-Friday (excluding bank holidays) and 9am-1pm on Saturdays.
If you are 11-19 you can text ChatHealth on 07480 635060 for confidential advice from one of our team.
Alternatively you can go to see your GP to discuss concerns.
