Fairy Godmother=Lilac Fairy=2nd Ballerina
Carabosse=Stepsisters=Men in Drag
Both ballets have a lot of fairies; Sleeping Beauty has about ten or so with solo parts; Cinderella has 4, one per season, they get to do solos which look pretty hard. Each has her own cavalier.
Then there's the ladies and gentlemen of the court, who get several dances, and the corps of (female) fairies who get to dance to one of the most glorious waltzes ever written! Assuming you will be doing the Prokofiev music, of course.
By the way, who is the choreographer?Sir Frederick Ashton? Ben Stevenson? Rostislav Zakharov? Someone else?

Sometimes the Stepsisters are dancing roles, danced by young women. And sometimes, in the Ashton, they're what are called "travesty roles," danced by men. I'd bet in your school show those parts will be danced by girls, and they might be fun to do, because you get to be bad on stage
Most choreographers use the Prokofiev score, and there are roles for 4 fairies (one for each season). And then it will depend on what version you'll be doing.
