A08. NCMP stands for National Child Measurement Programme.
The NCMP was established in 2005 and involves measuring the height and weight of Reception and Year 6 children at state-maintained schools, including academies, in England. Every year, more than one million children are measured and over 99 % of eligible schools take part on a voluntary basis.
The NCMP Network assists with disseminating the latest NCMP documents and providing a discussion forum for approved registered users to share and provide information for others on this network.
