Teachers at Trojan Horse-linked schools who Islamised pupils' education could have classroom ban lifted

A teacher who tried to Islamise the education of pupils at a Trojan Horse -linked school in Birmingham could return to the classroom in just three years.

The National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL) ruled in November that Akeel Ahmed undermined British values and failed to teach students at the former Park View Academy respect and tolerance to different faiths.

Now the Department for Education has ruled that the 41-year-old, of Wolverhampton, should be banned from teaching - but he could apply to have the ban lifted in 2019.

And fellow Park View teacher Inamulhaq Anwar - who also allowed “an undue amount of religious influence” on the education of pupils - has also been banned from the classroom, but could return in six years should he successfully apply to remove the prohibition order.

The 35-year-old, of Bordesley Green, was also previously found guilty of Islamising the curriculum through his former role on the governing body of Nansen Primary. [Birmingham Mail] Read more
