Islamic school stand-off
Birmingham city council is to send police into a failing school closely linked to the "Trojan Horse" plot after it physically resisted attempts by the council to take it over last week.
Al-Hijrah School, in Bordesley Green, was placed in special measures by Ofsted last year after inspectors found "inadequate" teaching, an unbalanced curriculum and governors "too heavily involved in the day-to-day running of the school."
More than half of parents at the school, which is 100 per cent Muslim, told the inspectorate their children were not being properly taught.
