Statistics

Childhood Overweight and Obesity

The National Child Measurement Programme for England (NCMP) which includes nearly all children in reception year (aged 4-5) and year 6 (aged 10-11) . 95% of eligible children were measured in 2017/18.

Child obesity is a good indicator of adult obesity which can lead to poor health outcomes. 

The NCMP is a key element of the Government’s approach to tackling child obesity by annually measuring over one million children and providing reliable data on rates of childhood obesity. Children are measured in reception (aged 4–5 years) and year 6 (aged 10–11 years) in mainstream state-maintained schools in England.

The programme was launched in the 2005/06 academic year and now holds twelve years of reliable data.
