School closure – Severe Weather Conditions

We will make every effort to keep the school open in the event of severe weather. However, in extreme cases the school may have to close due to severe weather or due to any other emergency.

Information about any closures will be available from the following places:-

Norham High school website -

Norham Facebook and Twitter page @norhamhigh

North Tyneside council website (changes to usual school hours / access indicated in bold) –

Radio Newcastle – 95.4fm @bbcnewcastle

Norham High school reception telephone – 0191 814 3890

The school will also send a text to all parents/carers who have registered a mobile phone number as a contact number with the school. If you have not provided a mobile contact number we would strongly advise you to do so.

The school will endeavour to inform parents and carers of any closures as early as possible and for a morning closure by 8.00am at the latest. If you are unsure of the school closure please do not hesitate to contact the school. Unless you hear otherwise through one or more of the sources above, please ensure your child is sent to school as per usual school timings.
