Paragraph

The Good School Toolkit, developed by Ugandan NGO Raising Voices, is a complex behavioural intervention, which takes a whole-school approach to support all school actors to change the overall culture of the school. The Good School Toolkit, reduces violence from school staff to students, and peer violence between students, in Ugandan primary schools. In 2015-16, LSHTM and Raising Voices adapted the Toolkit for use in secondary schools. 

The GST-S pilot trial is a pilot cluster randomised trial of the adapted Toolkit in Kampala and Wakiso in Uganda to test procedures in preparation for a larger trial to evaluate the effectiveness of the secondary schools version of the Good School Toolkit.
