Lunchtime & Breaktime Catering
BRAUNTON ACADEMY – STUDENT CATERING
Braunton Academy Catering Department in Isaac Hall, prides itself on the range of food options. We hold a 5-star Food Hygiene Rating, and all members of our Catering Team uphold this standard.
We are committed to using local suppliers, where possible: Our beef is sourced from Waytown Farm in Combe Martin, our eggs are from Freebird in Croyde and our bread is from the Country Cottage Bakery in Bideford. Phillip Dennis Foods and Ilfracombe Food Service are local suppliers who provide additional food items.
A brand new 'Snack Shack' has been erected. This new 'shack' will be providing students with similar, if not identical, food to the canteen and will continue as a permanent food outlet beyond that of the coronavirus era.
Below is a sample of the type of food that we offer, subject to availability, demand and seasonality.

Menu and Price List from 17th January 2022 - Link
There is always a range of plain water and orange/apple juice to drink. In addition there are filtered water coolers in the Academy which students are encouraged to use throughout the day.
Most requests can be catered for. Gluten-free (for those who are wheat intolerant or Coeliac), low fat and low sugar options can be requested. We aim to give students choice and good value. We follow the Food Trust guidance on nutritional standards in schools.
The Academy’s Food User Group meets each term, with representatives from the Governors, Staff and Student body. This group discusses food popularity, healthy options, pricing and the ever-popular Theme Days, i.e. Chinese, Mexican, American, Italian, which take place throughout the year.
Nut Free School
Due to some students having severe allergies, we are a nut free school. Please ensure that nut products are not brought in as part of students' packed lunches.
We use a cashless catering system.
In all behaviours at Lunchtime, students should carefully consider how they might negatively impact on others and act to avoid causing any upset. Please follow the link for Lunchtime arrangements
