BCP Council early years additional SEND payments

Early years additional SEND payments are part of BCP Council's Inclusion Fund.  

These grants contribute to provider's existing resources to support them in meeting the special needs of children in their setting. 

Payments are made using a two-tier system determined by the complexity of the child's need. 

Please read the BCP Early Years Additional SEND Payments Policy for information on how these are allocated.
