What is the new discount scheme - and when will it launch?

From Monday (November 2), all teachers and school staff will be able to claim a 10 per cent discount on their shopping in Morrisons stores nationwide.

Who can claim the discount?

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

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

Do Morrisons offer a discount for NHS staff?

Yes, Morrisons also offers a 10 per cent discount for NHS staff which was introduced in April.
