ABSTRACT This research aimed at analyzing domestic violence and pupils’ academic performance and participation in schools in Butembe sub-county in Jinja District. The study used cross-sectional survey on the targeted population, which was made of households living in Butembe Sub County with children going to the local primary schools. It explored cases and types of domestic violence and how they relate to academic performance and participation of pupils in school. The target population comprised of about 700 households from which 80 households were sampled using simple random sampling technique. The study used two sets of tool for data collection: household questionnaire and pupil school participation profile (PSPP). The data were in two phases. Phase I involved questionnaire administration at the household level while phase II involved administration of another set of questionnaire to the class- teachers in the primary schools attended by the 154 pupils in the selected households in phase L Descriptive statistics of mean, standard deviation, frequencies and coefficient of variation as well as tables and charts will be used to summarize the data. The study revealed that domestic violence affects pupil’s academic performance and school participation. It also revealed prevalence of all the forms and extent of domestic violence investigated in this study. This study recommended the different education sector stakeholders that address domestic violence as a social vice in order to improve academic performance and school participation of children coming from the slum areas, Education policy makers, school administrators, teachers, local administrators, social workers and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) should formulate strategies for addressing the ills of domestic violence and encourage socially inclusive intervention mechanisms within the slum areas. The legislative framework should incorporate protective laws against domestic violence and school participation, basic education rights and regulations. This study also recommends further research in order to investigate the pre-disposing factors that may exacerbate the influence of domestic violence on pupil’s academic performance and school participation in the sub-county areas.
