Hi, thank you for your question. You would not lose parental responsibility if a special guardianship order is made. If the grandparents were to apply for, and obtain a special guardianship order, then they would also have parental responsibility, but if there are matters regarding the children's upbringing that you disagreed on, they will have the final say as their parental responsibility would be greater than yours.
However, it may be better if they applied for a child arrangement order (for residence) as this would give them parental responsibility that would be equal to yours.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.

Before signing anything at all you should ask the school why they need this if the chidlren are only with their grandparents temporarily and you are aware of and happy with the situation
If it is temporary then a simply signed letter confirming that the grandparents have your permission to deal with day to day issues should be sufficient.
