Each year in England, school children in Year 6 have their height and weight checked at school as part of the National Child Measurement Programme. Height and weight measurements are used to calculate weight status. We collect this information because it is in the public interest to understand how many children are overweight, a healthy weight or underweight. 

If your child is in Year 6, please read the letter below.  This letter has also been emailed and a copy sent home with your child.

Any queries should be referred to the Healthy Child Programme Administration Team
