Abstract: The purpose of the study was to identify the effects of child labour on the academic performance of primary school children. The study was conducted in selected primary schools in Buwenge Sub County Jinja District Eastern Uganda. The General Objectives of the Study was to; establish the effects of child labour on the academic performance of primary school children in Jinja district Buwenge Sub County and the Research Objectives were; to find out the effects of child labour on the academic performance of primary school children in Jinja district Buwenge Sub County. To find out the effect of child labour on primary school children’s assessments grades in Jinja district Buwenge Sub County. To find out the relationship between child labour and academic performance in primary schools of Jinja district Buwenge Sub County. The researcher employed the simple random sampling technique during the research when she selected the sample size of the research and here she employed both qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection. The finding indicated that both male and females were respondents with the percentage of 100 this is true because pupils and parents and head teachers were interviewed. The researcher used both descriptive and analytical research designs. The research designs were appropriate because data was easily analyzed using frequency counts and percentage derived from the responses obtained in the questionnaires. From the study, it’s clear that majority of school going children are agents of child labour and academic performance was affected due poor turn up and incomplete homework assignments from pupils. In conclusion, Although high numbers of children from poor families are joining economic activities as workers and continue to be exposed to various worst forms of child labour, the greatest challenge lays in unfolding its often invisible or disguised traits which make it tolerable and widely accepted within local communities.
