Educational Guardianship Form – What Are the Requirements?

Educational guardianship form is your nomination for a UK-based guardian to look after your child while at boarding school in the UK, an essential requirement. Finding the right guardian is important, as is knowing what you can expect from them. Read on to find out more about what it takes to be a guardian.

If you do not reside in the UK, you cannot be called upon to be there immediately in an emergency situation. This is one crucial reason why you must appoint an education guardian. The appointed guardian could be a nominated friend of the family or even another family member. The person you choose must be over 25 years of age, and they can’t be a full time student. They should have a permanent place of resident in Britain. In an ideal situation, they should live at most around two hours or so away from the school. When looking for people to undertake guardianships, you should find someone who speaks fluent English as well. Of course, the person you choose must be able to provide a safe and suitable place for your child to live during half term and over free weekends. It is inadvisable that your child stays unsupervised in hotels, bed and breakfasts or other arranged accommodation. Most importantly, you must select a guardian who is willing to undertake quite a great deal of responsibility. It might be unfair or unwise to put this on a friend who might already lead a busy life. Therefore, it is advisable that you go through a guardianship agency who can provide these services for a fee.
