Day one of half term (Happy Monday!) and I've just received a message from 52 Lives to say lots of fundraising pages have been opened up already for the 52 Lives inspired 52 challenge we set for half term homework as part of the preparations for World Kindness Day - Incredible!

I just wanted to say...

Making a difference…Our charity of the year!

We are always exploring ways to make a difference in our school, the community and the wider world…and this year our chosen school charity of the year is...

52 Lives Charity!

Our children are all super kind-hearted so we can’t wait to share the wonderful ideas we have in store on our continued journey in making a difference to ourselves and others.

Charity of the Year 2019/20 - Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter.

Our pupils have selected the Newcastle Dog and Cat shelter as our chosen charity to support this year. We have been visited by Beth and Bobby from the shelter as part of our ‘Making a Difference’ work. Beth told us how the charity works and about the different animals they care for. Did you know it costs £188 every year to heat  just one shelter for a homeless dog? Our aim is to provide this for dogs like Bobby.  Across the coming months we will inform you of how we aim to achieve this goal. 

Charity of the Year 2018/2019 


During 2018/19 at Westerhope, our chosen charity was North East Hearts with Goals ( 




Over the course of the school year we ran a series of different events in order to raise enough money to buy a defibrillator. We eventually achieved our goal and believe this is an excellent investment for the whole school community.


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 live have already been saved on their website.
