An Ofsted report on an alleged plot by Islamist extremists to take over schools in the Midlands seen by ITV News has found that too little was being done to safeguard students at one of the schools from the risks associated with extremism.
The report also expressed concerns over recruitment and found weaknesses in the curriculum.
Park View Academy, one of the schools which has been under investigation over the plot, is to be placed under special measures, ITV News understands.
