Ofsted welcomes today's report and will consider its recommendations carefully.
As the chief inspector, Sir Michael Wilshaw, made clear to the committee last year, sudden changes in governance and leadership can have a significant impact on the standards in education.
These Birmingham schools were no exception.
Ofsted is committed to ensuring that such drastic declines are not repeated elsewhere and will continue to work closely with other agencies to identify and investigate any areas of concern.All schools have an expectation on them to teach values such as tolerance and the rule of law and prepare pupils for life in modern Britain. This is outlined in guidance issued by the DfE and Ofsted inspects schools against the criteria in this guidance.

A report has been released claiming that there was a "worrying and wasteful" lack of collaboration between the numerous inquiries into the Trojan Horse scandal in Birmingham.
MPs from the Commons Education Select Committee have warned that questions also need to be asked about the reliability of Ofsted's inspections - after the watchdog failed to recognise the problems at the schools when it first visited.
Four separate investigations were conducted into the alleged plot by hardline Muslims to seize control of a number of school governing boards in Birmingham.
While no evidence of radicalisation was found, the findings, specifically Ofsted inspections, did raise concerns that in some schools governors had exerted inappropriate influence over how schools were run.
