Parent and Learner View of Catering

Parents and learners view of catering is the same. They can see the date and time of their child’s food purchase, the item of food purchased and the cost of the food. Parents and learners can also see when parent top-ups have been made, for instance, in the example below the top-up appears as ‘Back Office Top Up’. This allows the parent to view if the top-up has been entered into the learner’s account. It also allows the learner to see if their parent has topped up their account.

The balance is always provided in the blue square at the bottom, indicating how much the learner can spend on food purchases.
