My dad is a taxi driver on a school run and uses an escort (used to be my mum then my sister).

It's easy money really, I know the going rate round my way is about £60ish a week (though depends on rates paid and generosity of driver and is only paid term time). Hours depend on length of journeys etc.

You need to have a full CRB done obviously because it is working with kids.

There are usually waiting lists if you apply, best route would be to ask around if you have any friends who know drivers etc.

Anything else you want to know just ask or PM

I'm not familiar with your terminology, but I think you mean a "parent" who officially attends functions with lots of kids ie school plays, day trips, etc
If I'm wrong just tell me to shut up
But I haven't been one but have worked with/employed them
You'll need a CRB check for sure and beyond that it's just a case of being a warm understanding (and patient) adult who won't lose their rag when the kids all go bonkers

Do you mean escort as in a Special needs escort for those kids who need … Do you mean escort as in a Special needs escort for those kids who need transport to school with supervision?The ones my son have had past and present have been employed by the council and you need the patience of a saint, you may also need training depending on the kids you escort.



I have a friend who works for the council doing this job. She has been off sick with stress now since April. Her downfall is she is very big hearted and she was collecting children from childrens homes and it was getting to her big time. The kids eventually started telling her about their lives etc and she was taking it all home with her. She is a lovely person - but too soft to do this particular job
