The School Community Safety Order Scheme allows Principals and other authorised persons to make orders to stop or limit parents, carers and other adults who enage in harmful, threatening or abusive ways towards school staff, students and others in the school environment. When issued, they set limits on how that person can behave around certain people, at certain times, at the school or other places where school activities happen. The order may also include special exceptions like times when, or areas where, the order does not apply.
