“It felt like a faith school. Islam permeated everything,” said a source close to the investigation. “All the citizenship teaching was about being a good Muslim and there was nothing that prepared pupils for life in modern Britain.”
Teachers ‘assaulted and marginalised in Islamising plot’

Staff at one of the Birmingham schools targeted by Muslim hardliners in the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were assaulted as part of a campaign against the school management, official documents show.
The disclosure comes as one local Muslim MP said he was certain there was an “extensive operation” to import fundamentalist views into supposedly secular state schools and “split young people away from their parents”.

Esmeralda has more on the ‘Trojan Horse” effort:
The reporters at theÂ TelegraphÂ believe there is an agenda, even if it was not actually called Operation Trojan Horse.Â
Staff at one of the Birmingham schools targeted by Muslim hardliners in the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were assaulted as part of a campaign against the school management, official documents show. Â The disclosure comes as one local Muslim MP said he was certain there was an “extensive operation” to import fundamentalist views into supposedly secular state schools and “split young people away from their parents”.
Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr, accused Birmingham city council of being “complicit” in the alleged plot and attacked the purported ringleader, Tahir Alam, saying: “It is very appropriately named Trojan Horse – that’s exactly what he has been doing.” Mr Alam, the chairman of governors at one of the schools allegedly taken over, Park View, says the plot is a fabrication and denies any involvement.
The Telegraph can disclose new details of problems revealed at Park View by a highly unusual two snap Ofsted inspections earlier this month.
Lindsey Clark, the respected executive head who has an OBE for services to education, told the inspectors that she had been marginalised and that all decisions at the school were taken by Mr Alam and a small group of hardliners, including one senior teacher who has praised the al-Qaeda ideologue Anwar al-Awlaki at school assemblies. Other staff also said that they felt sidelined.
Inspectors were openly told by one senior teacher that the solution to Muslim problems would be the creation of a global Islamic state under sharia law, a key demand of extremists. “It felt like a faith school. Islam permeated everything,” said a source close to the investigation. “All the citizenship teaching was about being a good Muslim and there was nothing that prepared pupils for life in modern Britain.”
Concerns have also been raised about Park View’s hiring procedures. Teachers at the school said that two people with virtually no teaching experience had been made subject heads, posts normally reached only after many years in the job.
One of the new subject heads had only just qualified as a teacher and the other, only a year or so more experienced, is his uncle. “The suspicion is that they were appointed for their religious sympathies and their personal connections,” said a teacher.
Mr Alam claimed last week that the focus on his school was part of a “witch hunt” motivated by “Islamophobia”. However, he has refused to deny any of the charges raised by The Telegraph. Another Birmingham school closely linked to Mr Alam, Al-Hijrah, took legal action against Ofsted last year to suppress a finding of “inadequate” against the school. It lost and the report was published, albeit with a delay.
Sources close to another secular school targeted by the hardliners, Anderton Park, say that the lives of successive non-Muslim head teachers have been made a “misery” by radical religious governors and parents determined to stop the teaching of PE and music, regarded as sinful by hardline Muslims.
Minutes of the governors’ meetings, seen by The Telegraph, show that campaigns of pressure against Anderton Park date back at least four years. In 2010, a group of parents formed a “breakaway parents’ committee” and withdrew their children from PE, which is compulsory in the National Curriculum. The head teacher at the time, Anne Bufton, said this was part of an attempt to “take over existing schools” and that “several local head teachers had expressed concern”. The minutes show that Mr Alam offered advice to the school, saying that they should provide segregated changing facilities for PE.
The following year, say the minutes, a “leafleting campaign” was organised against the school which “upset” children. At around the same time, the minutes said, there were a number of “assaults on staff” which were being “pursued by the local authority”.
Last month the governing body at Anderton Park voted 8-7 to “Islamise” collective worship at the school. The decision was greeted with delight by a group of hardline teachers, governors and school consultants calling themselves “Educational Activists”, who pursue what their leader calls an “Islamising agenda” in Birmingham schools and who convene on the WhatsApp instant messaging service.
In their WhatsApp messages, which have been leaked to this newspaper, members of the group celebrated that Anderton Park was now “polarised on faith grounds”. It can also be revealed that two members of the group have key roles in the training and recruitment of teachers and governors in Birmingham.
One is Najma Begum, the managing director of Transform Training and Recruitment, a consultancy which has recruited dozens of teachers to Birmingham schools and is currently advertising 43 teaching jobs in Birmingham on its website. In her messages with the group, Ms Begum says there needs to be training of “governors and education leaders from an Islamic perspective…on how we can assist governance within [the] mainstream”.
Another member of the group is Rebecca Williams, a governor at Wyndcliffe school in the city and a trainer of school governors for Birmingham City Council, where she works with Mr Alam. In the leaked messages, she writes: “The previous head teacher [at Wyndcliffe] conveniently retired and there is alhamdulillah [thank God] a new head who is committed to the pupils. However, the chair and vice chair, and deputy head who spent the last term aggressively attacking me for querying low standards, are all still in place. I pray Allah gives the children the standard of school they deserve.”
Another secular school allegedly taken over, Oldknow Primary, will be given an emergency inspection by Ofsted this week after The Telegraph revealed that its successful non-Muslim head teacher, Bhupinder Kondal, had been driven out, subsidised school trips to Mecca were organised and children were led in anti-Christian chanting by a teacher at assembly.
Many Muslim parents at Oldknow oppose what has been happening. “This is not supposed to be a faith-based school and we did not send our daughter to a faith-based school,” said one Muslim father, who has complained to his MP and to Ofsted. “After your article last week I asked my daughter what had happened to Mrs Kondal and she recited a script. It was as if all the children had been drilled. For me, it’s got to a point now where I need to do something.”
Meanwhile:Â MORE than a dozen schoolsÂ in Birmingham are now under investigation by the Department for Education (DfE) over allegations of financial mismanagement and the introduction of Islamic teachings and practices into secular schools. The investigation, the biggest of its kind, initially focused on a number of secular state schools where non-Muslim staff claim they were sidelined by predominantly Islamic governing bodies, but has now been widened to include several faith schools.
“Michael Gove has ordered an all-embracing investigation and has asked a number of department officials to drop everything and just focus on this. They will be going through financial records and interviewing staff members at more than 12 schools inÂ Birmingham. . . The DfE is especially interested in whether students are forced to wear religious clothing and whether any teachers have been hired because of their family connections to the governors,”
