Default Compost on top of straw mulch?

At the end of the last season, I laid a thick layer of straw directly on top of my raised beds.

I'm about to top the beds up with fresh compost and was wondering if it's a safe practice to just put an inch or two of compost directly on top of the straw layer, or if I should remove it completely prior to spreading new compost.

I don't till, so that's not an option for me.
