The Basildon Academies


Basildon Academies provide an 'in house' catering service which offers a committed and cost effective service to students and staff.

The Basildon Academies offer a range of healthy balanced meals, freshly prepared and cooked daily by a team of caring catering staff. Our produce is locally sourced with a local farm supplying our greengrocery; a family run butcher providing our meat and our groceries are from just over the border in Suffolk.

Our menu range covers a taste of the orient with sweet and sour dishes, a taste of Asia with curries and from Europe we have pasta and pizza: not forgetting roast dinners and fish & chips!  Vegetarian dishes are available daily. We have a variety of sandwiches, baguettes, wraps & salads, hot & cold desserts, cakes & fresh fruit available every day. The three weekly menu cycle is planned to take into account popular foods, the time of year and dietary considerations.

We run a cafeteria style cashless service where students can obtain, by using their pre-registered biometric details, affordable priced food at breakfast, break and lunchtime.

Parents and carers are provided with unique log in details to access Parent Pay to load money onto their child's account, free school meals are added automatically once entitlement is established. Students on free school meals are offered any two items from our menu regardless of price.

The catering team look forward to welcoming your child to the school cafeteria.
