The Department for Education has released a statement following the resignations of the members of the education trust at the centre of the alleged "Trojan Horse" takeover plot in Birmingham schools.
Tahir Alam, of the Park View Educational Trust, made the announcement today outside the gates of Park View Academy in Alum Rock, Birmingham.
A DfE spokesperson said:
“We are aware of the decision of the Park View Educational Trust to stand down. There will be three outstanding heads on the trust, whose immediate task for the new trustees will be to address the areas for improvement raised by the EFA and Ofsted reports and move it towards a successful sponsor.”
