Park View denies claims that interim prohibition orders have been breached

The BBC is reporting that a former chair of governors has denied weekend claims that a school at the heart of the alleged Trojan Horse letter plot has breached banning orders.

The Sunday Telegraph said two men “banned from the teaching profession” at Park View had been reinstated…

Former governor Tahir Alam said there had been “no breach” of the orders.

Mr Alam said: “As far as I understand it, these teachers have been given clearance by the National College for Teaching and Leadership [to return to the school] and there has been no breach of their orders.

“Some of these people have been suspended for reasons that I can only describe as silly and laughable.”

A representative for the school said the teachers were not banned.

“The two staff members have been attending the academy in accordance with understanding and authorisation from the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL),” he said.

“The arrangements have been fully risk-assessed in order to comply with strict criteria.”

He also denied the staff had been “reinstated”, saying: “One member of staff referred to has never been suspended from work…”
