Access to education is one of the fundamental rights of every child which should be delivered in a conducive and safe learning environment. With the introduction of Universal Primary Education (UPE) and the Universal Secondary Education (USE) , the Government of Uganda has greatly improved primary and secondary school enrolment for both girls and boys including those with disabilities. For these programmes to be effective, children need to access quality education and complete the education cycle in an environment free from violence. However, available research shows that violence against children in Uganda is widespread and occurs in almost all settings. Violence against children in schools has adverse effects to children including undermining their right to access quality education. However, most cases of violence against children in schools go unreported. It is against this background that this Reporting, Tracking, Referral and Response (RTRR) guidelines was developed.
