COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Latest Information

To our customers, friends, schools and the wider community,

The current and unpredictable work environment is challenging all of us and we wanted to let you know how LAGAD is addressing matters as circumstances evolve.

Following the latest government advice and guidelines regarding COVID-19, we will slowly be opening a number of our 'in location' classes.

We are committed to the longer term continued delivery of our classes. With this in mind, we have actioned our COVID Secure measures in line with British Gymnastics recommended protocols and Gov.uk school guidelines.

Where we are able to open and run classes, the following measures will be put in place :-

  • Parents will need to drop off and collect from an allocated area outside of the premises building.
  • Children should arrive ready dressed for the class and if necessary can bring ONR bag to put all of their items and clothing in.
  • The number of children that we can take in any one class will be reduced to allow for adequate social distancing measures.
  • Children showing signs of illness or fever should be kept at home and must not attend our classes.
  • In line with British Gymnastics guidelines, coaches and assistants will not be able to physically support the gymnasts in training. Examples will be shown to the children from a safe distance.

Once we have re-opened the office on 24th August 2020, you will be able to reach us as normal by email info@lagad.co.uk and phone 0208 883 4675.

We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and will keep you informed. Should there be any further national or local lockdowns, those signed up for in-person classes will be transferred to online classes for the duration of the out of location period

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and more importantly we continue to wish you and your family the very best during these very challenging times.

Let’s keep in touch.

Kind wishes to all,

How can I protect myself and my family from COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

We advise all families to follow the latest NHS guidance as well as Government and HSE guidelines.
