SUMT is a charity that wants to help build bridges between the Christian community and the Education community — so they set up initiatives that build strongly into the curricular and wider-educational goals of schools, whilst also enabling local Christians to serve on those initiatives. These initiatives are educational in context, and so enabling children and young people to engage meaningfully with Christianity as a major faith is the focus, not asking them for a personal response to adhere to anything.

SUMT wants to enable children and young people who do choose to investigate or follow Christianity personally, to be able to do that in ways that are meaningful, contemporary and spiritual — so they run Christian groups in schools, help churches with their children's and youth work, run residentials and missions, and train young Christian leaders.

SUMT are 'local ministry partners' with S.U. (Scripture Union England and Wales). They provide help, guidance and support, but SUMT is locally managed, funded and run charity. It's a partnership working very well.
