Special Educational Needs & Disabilities
At Meppershall Pre-School we understand the importance of early intervention and meeting children's individual needs. We work closely with parents and benefit from a good relationship with the Early Years SEND Team at Central Beds Council. We are committed to supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) by writing SEND Plans, liaising with professionals as necessary and accessing further training for our staff as required. (Refer to local offer below).
We are happy to support EHC Plans and DLA applications, and access additional funding for specialised equipment and 1-1 support when required. Our aim is to provide an environment in which all children are supported to reach their full potential.
If you would like to know more our named SENCO's Tamsin and Lisa will be happy to help.

Looked After Children
We offer places for Looked After Children (LAC) and offer funded places for two year olds who may be eligible, when meeting specific criteria to access two year old funding. Learn more on our funding page.
Early Years Pupil Premium
To support children further, those who are eligible for the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) will be supported to ensure gaps in their development are narrowed to provide them with the best possible start to their early years education.
