Q08. What is NCMP and how do I join?
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.
