Measuring Height and Weight of Children

Posted on: September 4, 2014

As was set out in the White Paper, The Importance of Teaching, good schools play a vital role as promoters of health and well-being in the local community.

As a result of the changes to the NHS and public health system brought through the Health and Social Care Act 2013, the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) is now a statutory public health function of Local Authorities.

More than 90% of state-maintained school now take part in the programme across England.

We have included the letter from Norfolk County Council on this page for you to read and help our parents understand more about the NCMP. Last years report can also be found at
