REACH FOR THE STARS... 21st March is World Downs Syndrome 'Lots of Socks' Day and we are raising the children's awareness by wearing odd socks on Wednesday. Improved attendance again with 96% and double WINITS this week for those attending on time every day. Well done Westerhope - the sponsored children did a wonderful job raising money for more books.

Charity of the Year 2017-18


Fundraising Fun!


This year at Westerhope, our chosen charity is North East Hearts with Goals ( 




Over the course of the school year we will be running a series of different events in order to raise enough money to buy a defibrillator. We believe that this would be an excellent investment for the whole school community and we look forward to sharing our next event with you in the new year.


Why a defibrillator?

Sudden cardiac arrest kills approximately 100,000 people a year and in the UK, 15 young people a week die from an undiagnosed heart condition. 


What is a defibrillator?

A defibrillator is a device that can read the electrical output from a persons’ heart. The device can assess whether a shock should be administered to the patient and will shock a patient to potentially save their life. A defibrillator will never shock a patient that does not need it.


You can find out more about the charity and how many lives have already been saved on their website. 


If you have any questions (or fundraising ideas!) please speak to Ms Trowell who is leading the fundraising this year.


We are now selling wristbands to support our fundraising - please see the letter below for further information.
