IT system

Find out about the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) IT system, including how to access it and guidance documentation.

The deadline for submitting and finalising 2019/20 data is close of business on Wednesday 5 August 2020.

Access the NCMP IT system

The NCMP system is a browser based online system and includes an updated offline data collection tool to allow for offline electronic capture of measurements at the point of measurement. 

If you don't have an account, you can create one within the system.

You will remain attributed to your role and local authorities from last year, but due to the annual revised school list for the new school year, and information governance protocols, you will need to be reassigned to your provider organisation (if applicable) and the schools you need access to.

If you're a primary super user or NCMP lead and are due to leave your role, please ensure you transfer your access rights to your replacement or to an appropriate colleague.

Access to the NCMP IT system is controlled at a local authority level. The local authority is responsible for allowing users access to the system when:

  • there is a clear business need
  • it meets the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.

If the primary super user has already left the organisation without handing over their access rights, please organise for your director of public health to nominate another primary super user by emailing a request and including the following details of the user:

  • name
  • local authority
  • job title
  • email address
  • telephone number
