Thank you for your question.
Employers are bound to follow a statutory dismissal and disciplinary procedure. If they do not it may prejudice the defence to any claim you eventually make against them
Before the meeting you could tell them (in writing preferably, possibly by email) that you are aware that under the Employment Rights Act 2002 your employer must set out in writing the grounds for the proposed action by the employer. You can view the steps they are obliged to follow here and you can print this out if necessary:-
They may say that it is not a formal disciplinary meeting and that they will initiate the procedure afterwards.
You could well choose to keep quiet about your knowledge of your rights. If they are not up to speed with the procedure, you can play dumb, let them mess it up the procedure they are statutorily bound to follow and then you will have one legitimate ground for basis for being treated unfairly (re- unfair dismissal, if you're eligible). Be careful to act civil, do not make any knee-jerk reactions in the meeting that you may later regret
