Abstract: The study was designed to find out the constraints in the implementation of child labour policy by education stake holders in Pakwach town council, it was guided by four objectives; to determine the profile of the respondents, to establish the extent of implementation of child labour Policy, to determine the extent of constraints in the implementation of the child labour policy in Pakwach Town Council Primary schools, and to find the relationship between the child labour policy and the level of constraints in the implementation of child labour policy. Using descriptive corelational design with a sample of 168 respondents, the study found out that the extent of constraints that impede the implementation of child labour Policy is high. The study further found out that the extent of implementation of the child labour Policy is fair, The study finally found out that there is a significant positive relationship between extent. of implementation of child labour Policy and the extent of the constraints in the implementation of this Policy. The study therefore recommended that; the government and the community should effectively integrate child labour and other related issues into their programs, Issues such as poverty alleviation should be tackled concurrently with child labour in an effort to bring an end to the practice, sensitization of the community on the objectives and implementation strategy of child labour is an important factor in a drive to end the practice. The government should therefore embark on effective sensitization exercise through meetings, workshops and seminars in order to create awareness of the objectives and implementation strategy of the policy within the community, and finally that social, cultural and political groups, supported by NGOs, should intensify on advocacy against child labour, This could be directed towards informing the community about the negative impact of child labour on school attendance of the pupils,
