NCMP Data Published 2011/12 School Year
The NHS Information Centre for Health and Social Care report on NCMP: England, 2011/12 School Year has just been published It is available to download from: http://www.ic.nhs.uk/webfiles/publications/003_Health_Lifestyles/ncmp%202011_12/nati_chil_meas_prog_eng_2011_2012_rep.pdf This 52 page report summarises the key findings from the government’s National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) for England, 2011/12 school year. The report provides high-level analyses of the prevalence of ‘underweight’, ‘healthy weight’, ‘overweight’, ‘obese’ and ‘combined overweight and obese’1 children, in Reception (aged 4–5 years) and Year 6 (aged 10–11 years), measured in state schools in England in the school year 2011/12. The report contains comparisons with 2010/11 and, where appropriate, comparisons have also been made with the results from earlier years. There are now six years of reliable NCMP data from 2006/07 to 2011/12. The data to be received during the 2012/13 school year is likely to contain a large cohort of children who were previously measured in reception during 2006/07. Additional analyses will be produced by the National Obesity Observatory (NOO) (expected to be published early 2013) and the anonymised national dataset will be made available to Public Health Observatories (PHOs) to allow regional and local analyses of the data. Summary findings: In Reception, over a fifth (22.6%) of the children measured were either overweight or obese. In Year 6, this proportion was one in three (33.9%). The percentage of obese children in Year 6 (19.2%) was over double that of Reception year children (9.5%). Among Reception year children, the prevalence of overweight pupils (13.1%) was greater than the prevalence of obese pupils (9.5%). In Year 6, the opposite was true with prevalence of overweight children (14.7%) being lower than that of obese children (19.2%). The prevalence of children with a healthy weight was higher in Reception (76.5%) than Year 6 (64.9%). In both years a higher percentage of girls were of a healthy weight than boys. In Reception 77.8% of girls and 75.4% of boys were a healthy weight and in Year 6 this was 66.2% and 63.6% respectively. The overall prevalence of underweight children was higher in Year 6 (1.3%) than in Reception (0.9%). In Reception, a higher percentage of boys were underweight than girls (1.1% and 0.7% respectively); whereas in Year 6, a higher percentage of girls were underweight than boys (1.5% and 1.1% respectively).

SACN Dietary Recommendations for Energy report
Update on the report, published in 1991, by the Committee on the Medical Aspects of Food Policy (COMA) which provided dietary reference values for energy (DRVs). The DRVs provide the best estimate of food energy needs for the UK population and its subgroups and criteria against which to judge the adequacy of their energy intakes. Any sustained imbalance between energy intake and expenditure will lead to progressive gain or loss in weight.

Childhood Obesity National Support Team: Update of findings
The Childhood Obesity National Support Team (NST) was established in September 2007. Since then, the team has undertaken visits in every region in the country, completing a total of 22 visits by the end of December 2008.
The main purpose of this report is to summarise and share the key learning we have gained from these visits regarding local areas and their progress on the healthy weight agenda. After providing a background to both the Childhood Obesity NST and the wider NSTs, the report highlights the team’s key findings, with a particular focus on our perceptions of areas that are in need of improvement. Included in this section are examples of potential good practice that we have collected from the areas visited. The report goes on to summarise feedback that local areas have given to us and which is of particular relevance to the Department of Health and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
Our key findings are that both the National Child Measurement Programme and Healthy Weight, Healthy Lives seem to have galvanised many areas into action, with progress now being made with the healthy weight agenda. There are, however, many common areas for improvement.
