The discount will also be available to teaching assistants, catering staff, caretakers, cleaners and school office staff

Morrisons has announced a discount to support teachers during the Covid crisis.

From today the supermarket said all teachers and school staff would be able to claim a 10% discount on their shopping in Morrisons stores nationwide.

Lasting until after Christmas, it said the special discount was a thank you to half a million teachers* and additional school staff who were looking after the nation’s children and supporting them through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Primary, secondary, private and special educational schoolteachers can all claim the discount, as well as all teaching assistants, catering staff, dinner ladies, caretakers, cleaners and school office staff.

The groups will also be able to participate in a dedicated shopping hour alongside NHS workers from 6am-7am (Mon-Sat) before stores open to other customers.

Morrisons launched a 10% discount for NHS staff in April.

Teachers and school staff can claim the 10% discount on their groceries by presenting their school photo ID card at the till in any of Morrisons’ 498 stores.

“Teachers and school staff are facing many challenges and the education of our children has never been more important,” said Morrisons CEO David Potts. 

This discount is our way of saying thank you as they continue to care for and educate our kids.”
