National Child Measurement Programme

Over the coming months the National Child Measurement Programme data will be collected by the School Nursing Team from Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust who will be taking height and weight measurement recordings of Reception and Year 6 children. The following are copies of letters distributed to schools who are being asked to participate in this year's programme.

The results from last year’s programme (school year 12/13) were collated by the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and were published in December 2013. A summary of the findings (national, regional and Somerset) can be seen here.
