What is the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP)?

  • Date published:

Did you know from December 2016 our School Nurse Health Assistants will be coming into your child's schools check their height and weight?

The Coventry School Nursing Team will be visiting schools to carry out the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP).  If your child’s weight falls outside the healthy range you will receive a letter  detailing how you can access support. You will not receive a letter if your child’s weight is recorded in the healthy range.

To find out more about the NCMP you can find the contact details for your local school nurse here:
