Well, if you mean the teacher in charge of the class... usually we call them (at least in my day)- Homeroom teacher.

In the UK a form teacher is the equivalent of a Homeroom teacher.  There is also a Year Head who has particular responsibility for each year group in a school.  This person also adds a final comment about each pupil to the school reports that are sent home, usually twice a year.  Maybe this is what you are referring to?

I want to mean the family member (mum, dad, brother, uncle, ...) who is reponsible for the child īs education at school. That member usualy sign the tests when the child take it home.
Is there an expression to say it?

I think you need the word "guardian". Our studentsÂī works are signed by their parent/guardian.

In the UK, at home it īs a parent/guardian.  Both words are given on official letters, reports, homework diaries etc.

Thanks to everyone.
Just one more question:
Is correct to say gardian signature?

īSignature of guardian ī is formal and therefore appropriate in this context.
