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.
School Council continue to plan events to help raise money to improve our KS1 playground.
Unfortunately, due to COVID19 we are currently unable to have our monthly School Council meetings. We are looking forward to continuing as soon as we can.

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.
