DH is considering a job in the UK, but we are wondering if there will be any problems enrolling our unvaccinated kids in UK schools. Has anyone done this? Is there a religious exemption in the UK? We're thinking of private schools if we go (american or international schools), and we won't go if vaccines are mandatory. Thanks for any information.

I'm pretty sure vaccines are not mandatory for going to school in the U.K.

There are no mandatory vaccines in the UK. AFAIK (as I no longer live there) you do not need proof of vaccination for a child to attend school.
