Does my child have to take part?

The Child Measurement Programme is an opt-out programme so you can choose for your child not to take part. The use of opt out approach means that if you are happy for your child to be weighed and measured and the results used for the Child Measurement Programme you need not reply. If you want to withdraw your child from the programme you need to let your school nurse know.

Every child measured is contributing to the national and regional picture about how children are growing. The more children that take part, the clearer the picture will be. If you wish to discuss whether or not to take part, please contact your school nurse.
