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 your child can get an affordable priced meal. There are revaluator machines in the dining area for students to load money onto their cards, free school meals are added automatically once entitlement is established. For students on free school meals we offer any two items from our menu regardless of price.
The catering team look forward to welcoming your child to the school cafeteria.
