Findings of the Kershaw report into Birmingham's 'Trojan horse' schools
On the alleged 'Trojan horse' conspirators
A number of "key individuals, predominantly men of Pakistani heritage ... are encouraging and promoting certain Islamic principles in schools in the Birmingham area, and the evidence suggests a pattern of these individuals moving between schools in the area". This included governors, deputy headteachers, teaching staff, trustees and parents, with some swapping between roles or holding a number of different posts across several schools.
The individuals sought to "promote and encourage Islamic principles in the schools with which they are involved" by introducing Islamic collective worship, or raising objections to elements of the school curriculum that were viewed as anti-Islamic, such as sex education, mixed PE classes or citizenship teaching.
