Bolton JSNA Indicator Sheet: National Child Measurement Programme - Reception

Abstract

This is the National Child Measurement Programme - Reception JSNA Indicator Sheet from the Child and Maternal Health section. JSNA Indicator Sheets summarise the current position and recent trends for Bolton, comparators to Bolton, and inequalities across population groups and geographical areas of Bolton.

Headlines:

  • Reception age children generally have a healthier weight than the North West and England, but are more likely to be underweight;
  • However, this positive picture changes by Year 6 (see accompanying Indicator Sheet) where Bolton performs poorly across all weight categories;
  • South Asian ethnicities in Bolton are more likely to be underweight, whilst the Asian Pakistani population is more likely to be obese compared to the Asian Indian population;
  • With some exceptions, Reception children are more likely to be obese in the more deprived South East and East of the borough.
