What is NCMP

Since 2006, each year children in primary schools in England are measured for height and weight. This is carried out by school nurses in reception (aged 4-5 years) and year 6 (aged 10-11 years) to assess levels of underweight, healthy weight, overweight and obesity. This data gives national and local services an indicator of the trends in this area. It also enables services to see the impact of interventions.
