The chairman of governors at a Birmingham school at the centre of claims about a takeover plot by Islamists has worked as a school inspector, it has been revealed.
Tahir Alam, chair of governors at Park View School is listed as being employed by the three firms contracted by Ofsted to carry out inspections on its behalf.
Park View is one of a number of Birmingham schools that have been inspected by Ofsted amid allegations of a takeover plot called Operation Trojan Horse.
The leaking, from her department, of a letter to Michael Gove, raises serious questions for the Home Secretary to answer.
One school was praised by Ofsted for using money from the pupil premium to pay for a number of cultural trips to Saudi Arabia.
Six Birmingham schools will be rated 'inadequate' and several more downgraded. Council officials have been criticised for failing to act.
