Governors at 'Trojan Horse' school resign

Governors at a school placed in special measures following allegations of a hard-line Muslim takeover plot to take over governing boards have resigned in protest, calling the Ofsted report "flawed".

Board members at Saltley School said they "have been left with little faith or trust" in the inspection process or Birmingham City Council in the fall-out over the "Trojan Horse" row.

The out-going governors criticised the Ofsted inspectors for not clearly concluding whether there was an "Islamic agenda" or not in the school's classrooms.

In their statement, entitled their "final response" on the matter, the governors said: "It is the Governors' view that the inspection and the report are flawed."

Saltley School, which has about 950 pupils, was one of five schools place in special measures following Ofsted inspections.
