ABSTRACT The study established the impact of child labour on academic performance of students in Secondary Schools at Kamuli progressive Secondary School, Kamuli district. The study was done basing on three objectives which were to: determine the forms of child labour at Kamuli progressive Secondary school, Kamuli District, examine the effects of child labour on academic performance at Kamuli progressive Secondary school, Karnuli District, seek suggestions on ways of minimizing child labour at Kamuli progressive Secondary school, Kamuli District. The research design was cross sectional and descriptive study which used qualitative and quantitative approaches. The study population comprised of 125 respondents of which 109 was the sample size. Purposive, stratified and random sampling design were used to collect information and both questionnaire, survey and interview data research tools were employed. Quantitative and qualitative methods, in-depth interviews were conducted and questionnaires were also administered to some respondents who could not read and interpret the question and the respondents from Kamuli progressive secondary School filled the questionnaires. The study findings showed that child labour forms impact negatively on student academic performance at Kamuli Progressive Secondary School according to the analysis made, child labour has got a number of effects both positive and negative on academic performance at Kamuli Preparatory Secondary School and also that there are suggestions on ways of minimizing child labour at Kamuli progressive Secondary school, Kamuli District. The study recommends that the children should be sensitized about the importance of educating and need for them to learn other than getting involved in child labour since this would mean a bright future for the children, the school management should encourage both the parents to send their children to school since this eventually would reduce poverty in their homes when their children have received education, Parents should be sensitized on the importance of education their children rather than using them to supplement to family income hence this should give parents the courage to face challenge and overcoming them without stopping their children from going to school and There is need for the government and other stakeholders to discourage child labour from the family level; since poverty emerged as the most constraining factor on working children. Consequently, policy reforms and poverty reduction strategies remain fundamental upstream concerns and must be pursued to tackle inequality and poverty.
