National child measurement programme

Annual guidance that advises local providers of the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) on how to implement it.

The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) is a nationally mandated public health programme.

It provides the data for the child excess weight indicators in the Public Health Outcomes Framework, and is part of the government’s approach to tackling child obesity.

Public Health England provides strategic leadership and support for this programme, and local authorities deliver it.

We have published guidance for data sharing and analysis for local authorities and other organisations who want to analyse the NCMP data further.
