Bolton JSNA Indicator Sheet: National Child Measurement Programme - Year 6

Abstract

This is the National Child Measurement Programme - Year 6 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:

  • Bolton Year 6 age children have an unhealthier weight than the average child in the North West and England across all weight categories;
  •  In Year 6, 20.0% of children are obese which is an increase from 7.8% for those of Reception age (see accompanying Indicator Sheet);
  • Asian ethnicities are more likely to be underweight in Bolton;
  • Obesity in Bolton's Year 6 children is the only category to increase significantly over the period of the NCMP but this trend is now coming back into line (since 2010/11).
