Promoting Good Practices of NCMP Case Studies within Birmingham Schools


Birmingham Public Health

Healthy Children-Healthy Schools A better Future

National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) Case Studies of Birmingham Schools


Throughout the years childhood obesity has been a growing health concern for Birmingham.

It has been recognised nationally that tackling obesity is a complex and multifaceted problem with over a hundred contributing factors as identified in the Foresight Tackling Obesities systems map. The role of local authorities in tackling and working to prevent obesity is crucial. Public Health England, the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Public Health are exploring how to make greater in-roads into tackling obesity by developing whole systems approaches’ that act across the local system.

Schools are a vital part of our plan, and have opportunities to support healthier eating, physical activity and to shape healthy habits. Schools also have unique contact with parents and can signpost them to information and advice on keeping their children healthy.

In view of this, work was been undertaken to highlight and promote good practice within Birmingham Schools. These schools have taken a proactive approach to establish interventions which are effective in improving in the Health and wellbeing of their pupils.
