"Concerted efforts" to run six schools in Birmingham as strict Islamic institutions "would make some of us feel uncomfortable", according to a headteachers union.
We ourselves have concerns about what has been going on in around half a dozen of those schools.
It does mean from our point of view that we don't believe that these allegations are a cause for panic, but neither do we believe that they are a source of comfort either, that there have been things going on inside our schools which would make some of us feel uncomfortable, I believe.
Mr Hobby added that there were three key areas that are of "collective concern" by members.
They were; concerns pressure had been put on school leaders to adopt certain philosophies, staff being appointed on religious beliefs and not skills and fears youngsters were not getting their "basic entitlement" to a rounded education.
