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.
The appointed chair of the Interim Executive Board, Mr David Willey, together with a number of specialist Local Education Authority officers visited the school and were refused entrance.
The IEB is crucial in ensuring the rapid improvement of Al-Hijrah school following poor Ofsted reports which have identified inadequacies in the achievement of pupils, the quality of teaching, the behaviour and safety of pupils and the leadership and management of the school.
