Remove the US layout completely?

System Settings -> Text Entry.
In "Input sources to use" make sure you have a line for English (UK)
and highlight the English (US) one and click the "-" minus sign to
remove it. You could also untick the "Show current input source in the
menu bar" to get rid of that if you don't need it.
