Raising standards and improving outcomes in education requires more than teacher effort alone – we must also seek to enhance the social and emotional aspects of learning. Our children need to engage and react to improve the outcome of their education.

SUMO Equation

This is encapsulated by the 'SUMO Foundation Formula': E + R = O. An Event and our Response to it determine the Outcome. This is a powerful tool that helps children realise they can change and influence what happens in their own lives. This recognition helps to transform their engagement and motivation in school and in turn drives up the standards and outcomes of their lessons and classes.

SUMO4Schools is designed for schools who recognise that a range of factors affect pupil development and achievement including self esteem, motivation, collaboration, co-operative learning, resilience against setbacks and improved confidence. But SUMO does not seek to exist outside the school curriculum - instead it serves as an integral part of the learning process and as such can help to achieve the demands of not only the curriculum but also many associated programmes and initiatives.

  • SUMO4Schools incorporates individual, paired and collaborative learning activities that can be utilised in both
    Key Stages 1 and 2 for schools working towards implementing the new framework for PSHE.
  • The emphasis on developing emotional literacy and self-awareness within SUMO4Schools materials makes it ideal for supporting and enhancing SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning).
  • Because SUMO4Schools can deliver a transformative difference in the engagement and motivation of children, it dovetails with initiatives including Building Learning Power, Collaborative Learning and Learning to Learn.
  • SUMO4Schools helps to achieve the emphasis on well-being.
  • SUMO4Schools can be used to enhance and support anti-bullying programmes and prevent anti-social behaviour within the framework of the Every Child Matters (ECM) initiative. It acts as a support resource for schools working within the Healthy Schools remit.
  • SUMO4Schools is a vital tool for improving standards of pupil care as recognised by
    School Improvement Partners.

If you're ready for the challenge of seeing how SUMO4Schools could make a difference to your school, why not come and see SUMO in action for yourself by arranging a visit to a SUMO school?

SUMO success! What people say…

Whole School Inset Training
Many of our pupils  face daily challenges at home and need every strategy and support mechanism at school to enable them to succeed to their full potential academically and socially. SUMO has given the staff and children a common language and structure approach to talk through areas of concern and possible conflicts in a constructive way. SUMO training has also freed up the staff to engage with each other in a totally honest and thus more professional way about the hurdles and issues they face from outside and within, enabling us to move forward as a school in a quicker and more effective way.
