At Prospect Hill Infant and Nursery School, we are proud to have pupil representatives from each class to take part in School Council meetings. There are 12 members which are elected by their classmates every September, and they meet once a month, with Mrs. Wain, to discuss issues and report on the ideas of their classes.
The objective of an effective School Council is to:
- Enjoy and feel empowered by their education.
- Feel that their school responds to their needs and views.
- Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them.
- Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place.
- Develop life skills through participation and co-operation.
A School Council Suggestion Box and Notice Board are located at the main entrance. Our children are encouraged to use the suggestion box to help improve our school.
Meet our 2021/2022 School Councillors.
This year School Council will continue to plan events to help raise money to improve our KS1 playground.
We had our first meeting of the year on Friday 12th November. We discussed our first fundraising event and jobs we need to do over the coming school year. It's going to be busy, but we are looking forward to it.

Fundraising Skydive & Design a T-shirt Competition.
On Saturday 2nd April Mrs Wain took part in a tandem skydive to help us raise money for our playground project.
We asked our friends in school to help design a t-shirt that Mrs Wain could wear on the day. We had lots of lovely entries and some of our Governors judged the competition for us. The prizes for the winning designs were given to us by ASDA in Worksop.
We have raised over £1000 so far.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Just Giving page.
Have a look at a few of the lovely designs
There were four pictures on the front of the t-shirt, one from each year group, and a word design on the back.
Thank you to everyone who entered.
Well done to our winners!

Christmas Event 2021
Our first job was to plan a fundraising event for Christmas. The first thing we decided to do was organise a Christmas bauble decorating competition. We bought some baubles, had the little tags kindly donated to us and sold the baubles to the children who wanted to take part. Some of our Governors agreed to judge and we wrote to local supermarkets asking if they could donate some prizes for our winners. Tesco and Morrisons were brilliant and sent us some prizes which we made into activity hampers. The entries were all amazing and our Governors had a very tricky job.
We raised £151. Thank you to everyone who entered, your designs were incredible.
Unfortunately, due to COVID, our singing events had to be cancelled so our plans had to be changed, but that didn't stop us.
We decided to set up some hot chocolate treat tables around school. We asked for donations for the treat packs and reindeer food to be placed in out honesty tins.
Your support and kind donations raised £144.
Take a look at our Fundraising page for more details and to see some photographs.
Look at what we did in 2020/2021
Due to COVID 19 we were unable to do council meetings, organise our usual fundraising events and visit our friends at Beech House Care Home. We hope to start our meetings as soon as possible.

Easter Colouring Competition 2021
On behalf of our school council, some of our Year 2 councillors helped to organise an Easter colouring competition and we asked our Governors to judge for us.
ASDA in Worksop and Home Bargains in Rotherham donated an amazing amount of Easter goodies to give to our winners. Because of their generosity we were able to award 4 prizes in each year group category and an extra Governor’s award.
We wrote to ASDA and Home Bargains to say a BIG thank you for their wonderful donations and also wrote to our Governor's to thank them for judging!
Thank you to everyone who entered, we raised £120.00 towards our playground fund.
