Collecting data for the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) is now a statutory public health function of local authorities.

To support local authorities running the programme, the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has upgraded the Excel-based data collection tool used in previous years for validating and submitting NCMP data.

The new system is now available for use in the 2013 to 2014 school year.

For further information on the new system please visit the HSCIC website.
