Child Safe Commitment



Alpha Badminton Academy is committed to the safety and wellbeing of children. Alpha Badminton Academy will ensure all staff are aware of the 10 Child Safe Standards to ensure child safety and wellbeing is acknowledged throughout our work at all levels of the agency.

Alpha Badminton Academy has zero tolerance to child abuse and neglect in any form. We support the rights of children. They have the right to take part in sport in a safe, positive, and enjoyable environment, where they are respected and valued. Child safety and protection remains a priority for Alpha Badminton Academy now and into the future.

As a member of the Badminton Australia, Alpha Badminton have adopted Badminton Australia’s policy framework which includes the Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy. Alpha Badminton will do our best to keep children safe through planning, decision making and day-to-day operations with the following:

  • we will take a preventative, proactive and participatory approach to child safety

  • we value and empower children to participate in decisions that affect their lives

  • we foster a culture of openness that supports the safe disclosure of risks of harm to children

  • we respect diversity in cultures and child-rearing practices while keeping child safety paramount

  • we provide written guidance on appropriate conduct and behaviour towards children

  • we engage only the most suitable people to work with children, and have high-quality supervision and professional development of our staff and volunteers

  • we make sure children know who to talk with if they are worried or are feeling unsafe
