The investigation will look into an alleged plot by hardline muslims to seize control of schools in the city.
The focus of the allegations has been the Park View Educational Trust which runs 3 schools- all of which have been subjected to snap Ofsted inspections in recent weeks.
The trust denies all the allegations.
