The temporary closure of a Muslim free school has raised serious questions about ministerial oversight of the creation of the Government's flagship institutions, Labour has said.
Shadow education secretary Stephen Twigg said swift answers were needed about the Al-Madinah school in Derby, and that the situation must be "clarified urgently in order to reassure the public".
The school opened in September last year but closed its doors temporarily on Tuesday over a health and safety issue just hours after Ofsted began an inspection.
It follows claims that female teachers at the school - which claims a "strong Muslim ethos" - were forced to wear hijabs even if they were not Muslim.
