Parental Consent Form Template
The parental consent form template is the most practical way to obtain parental consent before a field trip or any other activity that involves minor children. No need to have parents come over or send them paper forms that are oftentimes forgotten or lost. Use a more efficient system and send them a link to your online parental consent form so they can fill it out hassle-free, on their phone, in less than a minute. Do you want to use this form? Then copy it in our form builder, edit it as needed, and share it with simple copy-paste.
Customize it by including details about the activity and your school’s involvement. Ask for key information about the parents or guardians, the child, and their potential special needs. And then share it with the parents in your shared communication tool (Whatsapp, Slack, etc.) or in your monthly school newsletter.
