Welcome to Compton Church of England Primary School, Newbury

Latest News: Charity Week was a Great Success.

Sunday 20 July, 2014

DSCN0157DSCN0152             Compton CE Primary School held a Local Charity Week to raise vital funds for the Alexander Devine Childrens Hospice Service. Through a variety of  activities organised by each class we raised an amazing £351.20.

The week began with a dressing up day organised by Elm Class. The pupils came dressed as either a film or book character. There were some amazing costumes and prizes were given out by Elm Class. The winners were: Joe, Beatrice, Bessie, Harry R, Charlie, Oscar, Alice and the staff prize was awarded to Mrs Martin. This was followed by Hazel and Beech classes setting up a cake sale on Tuesday – thank you to parents for all the yummy donations.  On Thursday Oak and Willow classes organised some mini stalls of  name the teddy, number of sweets in the jar, and find the treasure on the map. Finally on Friday Sycamore and Maple classes ran some very active activities at lunchtime. These were Welly wanging, hula hooping, Velcro target, speed bounce, beat the goalie and skipping .   Prizes were  awarded for the highest scores by age group. Alexander Devine Childrens Hospice have sent us a thank you email already for the amazing £351.20 and a certificate will soon be with us. Thank you to the parents and children for supporting this event and for the teachers for organising another great week at Compton Primary School.

Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service (http://alexanderdevine.org/index.html)  is raising funds to build the very first hospice for children in Berkshire with life limiting and life threatening diseases.  It will bring a great deal of comfort to families dealing with the tragedy of a knowing their child will not reach adulthood and fulfil a need for children in Berkshire who are currently having to travel to another county for their care.  As well as planning for the hospice, the charity provides nurses who support families across Berkshire in their own homes providing respite, palliative care, emotional and practical support. They have secured a plot of land for the hospice to be built on but still need to raise funds to complete the build. 

Mission Statement:

The relationship between the school, parents, pupils, governors and the community is vitally important. In September 2010 all these groups joined together to develop the mission statement for the school as it moved on into its next phase – to become outstanding. The mission statement encapsulates all these ideas and ambitions for the school.

As a church school our ethos reflects Christian moral values which build positive partnerships with families, local and global communities.

We aim to:

  • Provide an outstanding education for all pupils
  • Develop everybody’s unique personality, abilities and talents through creative learning experiences
  • Encourage confidence, independence and self-belief so that all individuals can reach their maximum potential
  • Embed within the school a culture of respect and care for each other and themselves
  • Instil a lifelong love of learning with the ability and desire to make God’s world a better place
