Healthy Weight Programme

Barnet Healthy Weight Management

BPSS are proud to be working with the Healthy Weight NHS Team by providing a programme of physical activity sessions. These children are referred as part of the National Child Measurement Programme and other health professionals working in Barnet. Typically the children are above the 99.6th Centile which places them in the very overweight category on the children's BMI centile charts. 

All of the recorded sessions, aimed at 4-9 year olds and 10+, are now available via the BPSS YouTube channel. Please feel free to share these with any families within your school.
