Image: Sainsbury's has earmarked £1m for teacher training

Supermarket chain Sainsbury's has launched an inclusive PE training programme for teachers which aims to ensure disabled children can take part in sport in mainstream schools.

Sainsbury's Active Kids For All will see the company invest £1m in teacher training courses which will help more than 500,000 disabled pupils and children with special education needs to be included in school PE lessons.

Justin King, CEO of Sainsbury's, said: "While teaching and support staff undoubtedly have the skills, knowledge and competencies to deliver sport to disabled children and young people, not all have the confidence to fully include disabled children within their PE lessons.

"That is why we have worked with the Home Nations Disability Sport Organisations to develop Sainsbury's Active Kids For All."

The company will also extend its sponsorship of the British Paralympic Association (BPA) to support them through the Sochi Winter Paralympic Games in 2014 and to Rio in 2016.
