Our Church Ethos


Compton is a Church of England Primary School in the Diocese of Exeter. Recognising its historic foundation, the school strives to preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles and practice of the Church of England and in partnership with Emmanuel and the Diocese.

Our Vision: We are using the recent changes to the SIAMS inspection framework as an opportunity to reflect on our Christian Vision . Our new vision will draw deeply on our local context, be grounded in clear theology and will be firmly rooted in a Christian narrative.

Our Core Christian Values are:

Responsibility, Friendship, Perseverance, Creativity and Forgiveness.


Our Church


We are proud to be a church school. It enables us to promote a child centred approach within a caring atmosphere that is underpinned by spirituality and Christian ethos.

Our church is Emmanuel, a vibrant community twenty minutes walk away. We celebrate Christmas, Harvest and Year 6 Leavers’ Service at Emmanuel and also link up for other activities. Their rector, Reverend Karl Freeman regularly visits our school to lead worship.
