% of children in reception year who are overweight and obese (889) Metric type

Established in 2005, the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) weighs and measures children in Reception (typically aged 4–5 years) and Year 6 (aged 10–11 years). The findings are used to inform local planning and delivery of services for children and gather population-level surveillance data to allow analysis of trends in excess weight. The programme also seeks to raise awareness of the importance of healthy weight in children. The NCMP is part of the government's strategy to tackle the continuing rise in excess weight. Although the policy on child obesity covers a period of 12 years, progress over the period 2008-11 will be monitored through the inclusion of child obesity (as shown by NCMP data) as one of the indicators in the child health Public Service Agreement (PSA). When interpreting the results, it is important to consider the possible effects of participation rate on prevalence rates.

% of initial child protection conferences held within 15 days of the start of the section 47 enquiries which led to a conference (902) Metric type

Where concerns about a child’s welfare are substantiated and the agencies most involved judge that a child may continue to suffer, or be at risk of suffering significant harm, the social care services department should convene an initial child protection conference. The purpose of the conference is to draw together the information that has been obtained and to make judgements on whether the child is at continuing risk of significant harmand whether he or she therefore requires a child protection plan to be put in place. It is set out in the inter-agency guidance “Working Together to Safeguard Children” that an initial child protection conference should take place within 15 working days of the strategy discussion which decided whether s.47 enquiries should be initiated. The conference will result in a decision on whether the child will become the subject of a plan or not.
