I am supposed to work this Saturday but unfortunately I can’t so my friend kindly offered to cover my shift. I spoke to my manager about it and she requires a written notice from my friend that’s going to cover my shift? I’ve never heard of something like this before in other places I’ve worked before but is it just standard at Tesco? I also haven’t seen other people do it and I didn’t do it when I covered somebody else’s shift.

Also I’m just not sure what to write on it for my friend? Any suggestions/ help?

I've never heard of that one before (at any company).
I'd get it written down that your friend is covering the shift to keep them happy. Just keep it simple and say that X person is covering your shift, X shift on X date and get it signed by you both.
When you give it them, I'd ask why they require this.

Thank you for the help !

They will require this so that the friend cannot just not turn up on the day then claim that they didn’t know/agree they would work.
It will either be standard practise or have been put into place because it has happened too often.
