Has your child just been measured at school? The results can be surprising, but they're just a snapshot of your child's weight and it's not the end of the world. Get them back to a healthy weight with a few simple changes to help them eat more healthily and be more active.
Have you received a letter?
Children have their height and weight measured in Reception and Year 6 as part of the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP). This information is used to plan and provide better services for children and families.
If your child's NCMP letter surprised or worried you, speak to your GP or school nurse for advice and support. You can call the number on the results letter for advice and support too.
