The Ofsted chief inspector has said that under a regional structure, inspectors are now "closer to the ground" with schools than ever before.
In a statement, Sir Michael Wilshaw said:
It's vitally important that we remain vigilant for such problems developing in any part of the country.
Under Ofsted's regional structure, our inspectors are now closer to the ground and to those we inspect than ever before.
Where we hear of concerns, we will respond swiftly in order to reassure parents and the wider community that children are receiving the good, safe and well-rounded education to which they are entitled.
Sir Michael also confirmed that inspections in a number of other areas outside Birmingham - where there have been claims of a plot by hardline Muslims to take over schools - are now being conducted.
