Purchasing Cards

Schools will usually hold one or two cards, with a maximum of three being allowed. Individual card holders will need to adhere to local in school guidance and compliance documents previously approved by the full Governing body ahead of completing their final application. Applications can only be requested via SAT, where a number of generic guidance and compliance documents alongside a Governor declaration form will be issued.

Schools will be liable for the security as well as being able to provide an audit trail of purchase approvals, a maintained log, through to a fully reconciled monthly statement for each card holder. Further guidance can be found by accessing the documents below.
