  • make an order to leave the school premises;
  • detain the person;
  • lockdown;
  • call the police;
  • issue a prohibition order;

  • seek a restraining order.

The principal or other authorised person must:

  • invoke lockdown, pending the removal of the threat if students and/or staff are at threat from physical harm; and
  • report all incidents involving intruders and visitors who become disruptive via the Online Incident Notification System.
