At Birch Wood we use School Gateway, an essential tool to keep you informed about what’s going on at school. It keeps everything in one place, behind one login, so you can easily keep in touch.

As a parent/guardian you can visit for more information and to register.

  1. Register as a new user on the School Gateway website. Use the email address and mobile number that you have given the school.
  2. School Gateway will send you a text with a 4-digit PIN.
  3. Login and stay up to date. Keep the app open on your device to immediately see new updates as and when they happen.

If we do not have an email address on record for you, please give us a call.
