About the National Child Measurement Programme

This programme consists of five audio recordings that have been produced to support school nurses, their teams and other professionals delivering the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) to have supportive and constructive conversations with parents about their child’s weight status. The recordings can be used in conjunction with the guidance outlined in NCMP: a conversation framework for talking to parents and Annexe 1- common queries and challenges.

In these recordings, a practitioner (played by a health professional who works in child weight management) and a parent (played by an actor) have telephone conversations about their child’s weight after receiving an NCMP feedback letter. The recordings are fictional, but based on real-life examples, and are designed to help practitioners think about the different ways they can use the NCMP conversation framework to respond to parents’ concerns and to offer ongoing or further support.
