Governors, deputy and acting headteachers, trustees and parents were involved in a pattern of behaviour "moving between schools" in Birmingham, an inquiry into alleged 'Trojan Horse' schools has found.
In a 151-page report for Birmingham City Council, Ian Kershaw concluded: "The evidence shows individuals have been seeking to promote and encourage Islamic principles in the schools with which they are involved, by seeking to introduce Islamic collective worship, or raising objections to elements of the school curriculum that are viewed as anti-Islamic."
Mr Kershaw's report said the problems had been allowed to run "unchecked" due to what he branded "weaknesses in the system and poor oversight of governance" mainly by the city council, but also by Ofsted, the Education Funding Agency and the DfE.
