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.
You may find these documents helpful when making your application.
Here is a list of questions that you will find on the online application form.
We have also produced a guide to selecting a SEND Primary Need.
Application forms for the Additional SEND Payments are on a secure portal which requires a business account online to access.
See our guide on how to create a business account.
If your enquiry is about the completion of the forms, please email your BCP SEND Officer Team.
