Information for parents about the EU Settled Status Scheme

CHILDREN AND THE EU SETTLED STATUS SCHEME

We would like to bring to your attention an important issue for your consideration. If you are an EU national you need to act to retain your right to continue living in the UK. All EU children and non EU children who are family members of an EU national need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme by 30 June 2021 to retain their right to live and study in the UK.

Please note that:

1. Children are not granted Settled Status automatically even if the parent, or parents, have already applied

2. Children born in the UK are not automatically British. It depends on when they were born and their parents circumstances

3. Those who do not apply by the deadline may become unlawful residents. This may affect their access to education in the next school year

Citizens Advice in Kingston can advise on making applications to the scheme to anyone who lives, works, studies or cares for someone in the borough. Their service is free, confidential and impartial.

Lime Tree staff are obviously not qualified to provide immigration advice, so to help you with any questions you may have here are a couple of links with useful information
