Head teacher at 'Trojan Horse' school could have classroom ban lifted in five years
The former headteacher of a Trojan Horse-linked school in Birmingham has been handed an "indefinite" teaching ban - but could be back in the classroom in five years time.
Jahangir Akbar, the former acting principal of Oldknow Academy in Small Heath, was last month found guilty of professional misconduct following a hearing by the government-run National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL).
Now the Department for Education has revealed the 38-year-old has become the first teacher in Britain to be sanctioned for allowing an "undue amount of religious influence" on pupils' education.
