Can I travel to the UK? If yes, what tests/proof of vaccination do I need?

Staying with a host family
Our host families have been asked to provide details about their vaccination status and we will prioritise families that are in possession of proof of a full vaccination. Of course children under the age of 12 are not currently being vaccinated in the UK. This may change.
At the school/in class
Classes will be held in rooms where a good aeration is possible and sizes will be kept as reasonably small as possible.
