Our Complaints Policy and Procedure (Parent’s Guide) December 2018 includes information on the arrangements for handling complaints from parents of children with special educational needs about the support Birchwood provides.

Form tutors and subject teachers are able to reset student passwords for the School NetworkOnline Reporting and Show My Homework and should be the first to be contacted. Form tutors should be the first point of contact.

If this is not possible, for example if students are not in school for any reason, please e-mail the IT Student Support team.
