UK-WHO growth charts
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has now produced a complete suite of charts (supplied in the UK by Harlow Printing) for all uses ranging from child health surveillance to detailed monitoring of children with health problems.
The newest of these, published in June 2013 is the Childhood and Puberty Close Monitoring (CPCM) Chart. This is a modification of the main school age chart for use in children with growth or nutritional problems and will be ideal for use in specialist clinics and special schools. The chart extends to age 20 years and features:
• Body mass index (BMI) chart
• Low and high lines to monitor unusually short, thin or overweight children
• Puberty phase specific thresholds to assess
Small children with late onset of puberty
Tall children with early onset of puberty
• Tanner stage graphs to assess detailed progress of puberty
The details of all the charts can be found by following the links below :

Personal Child Health Record (PCHR) charts

We welcome feedback about the UK growth charts. Any feedback submitted will be considered when the charts are reviewed. Unfortunately we are not able to respond individually to comments about the charts. To request the feedback form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The charts have been developed as a project undertaken within the RCPCH Science and Research Department, Growth Charts Expert Working Group, led by Professor Charlotte Wright from the University of Glasgow and funded by the Department of Health.
