A group of interim governors drafted in by the Government to preside over a faith school, are "crucial" if the facility is to undergo the "radical improvement" it needs, a spokesman for the temporary staff said.
Al-Hijrah school in Birmingham, which is not being investigated under Operation Trojan Horse, was placed in special measures after failed inspections in December 2013 and April this year.
An Islamic school in Birmingham, which is not involved in Operation Trojan Horse, has rejected the interim governing body appointed to address serious failings - for a second time in 12 days.
Birmingham City Council said members of a Government-approved Interim Executive Board (IEB) were refused entry to the Al-Hijrah School yesterday after arriving to implement an improvement plan.
The refusal to work the IEB came from a protest by 30 parents at the Al-Hijrah School, in Bordesley Green, an inner-city area of Birmingham.
The school, which caters for pupils aged 4 to 16, was placed in special measures after an inspection in December 2013, and was found to remain inadequate during a follow-up visit in April.
