Child abuse is a state of emotional, physical, economic and sexual maltreatment meted out to a person below the age of eighteen and is a globally prevalent phenomenon with a silent stigma attached. A quasi experimental research design was used to assess the Effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme on Knowledge and Attitude of School Teachers regarding Child Abuse at Selected School.30 school teachers selected by simple random sampling technique, by using structured questionnaire and attitude scale, pre and post structured teaching programme. Pre-test knowledge mean score was 10.6 (average knowledge) and pre-test attitude mean was 33.4 (poor attitude). After structured teaching programme calculated t-values for Knowledge (8.03) and Attitude (16.25) and it was concluded that Structured Teaching Programme on Child Abuse was effective in improving the Knowledge and Attitude of the School Teachers regarding Child Abuse significantly. Since Fisher Exact value to Class Teacher of Class was significant, the null hypothesis was rejected. It was concluded that Class Teacher of Class was the demographic variable which was found to have significant association with attitude of the School Teachers regarding Child Abuse. Thus it can be concluded that class teachers of 1st-6th std had better attitude than class teachers of 7th-12th std towards child abuse. From the study it can be concluded that school teachers lack knowledge on child abuse and pose poor attitude towards child abuse. This deficit in knowledge and attitude among school teachers can be filled by providing Structured Teaching Programme on Child Abuse.
