What is the National Child Measurement Programme?
How do the school nurses help?
A trained school nursing staff member from the team will supervise the measurements, which will take place in a private space away from other pupils. The children will be measured while fully clothed, except for coats and shoes.
If your child is absent on the day of your child’s school visit, there may be an opportunity for them to be measured at a later date.
We can also support you and your child to make small sustainable changes to improve your health and well-being. If you would like to discuss your child’s result letter or access support from a trained nurse, please call us on 07824 498744 (during normal working hours, or email NCMP.Enquiries@oxfordhealth.nhs.uk
