Will everyone know my child's height and weight?

No. Your child’s information is confidential and will be part of your child’s health record.
The results are written on a form and later entered onto the local electronic child health system . This is the clinical system that is used by school nurses, health visitors and other community based clinical staff to keep a record of important information such as the results of development checks, some tests and routine childhood. 

Only health professionals caring for your child will see information that identifies your child; these professionals will use it as part of normal clinical care. Information that identifies your child will not be shared with anyone else. It is never shared with school staff.
