WHAT IS SSE?
School Self-Evaluation refers to a process by which the school determines, at a given point, to what extent it is succeeding in attaining its stated aims and objectives, taking into account the particular priorities and full range of available resources
PRINCIPLES OF CONDUCTING SSE

The process should be characterised by:
Collaboration, (Letting each voice be heard) to reach consensus

Use findings of SSE to complete the School Annual Report (SAR).
Submit SAR & SIP to Circuit Manager/District for approval

The purpose of the SIT is to:
Monitor the implementation of the SIP
Members of the SIT should consists if 4-6 depending on the size of the school
The SDT can also serve as a SIT
STEP 2: Conduct SSE
Data collection and Recording
SIT facilitates the School Self Evaluation process i.e. gathering information on school performance with respect to 9 WSE AFE.
Schools can group teachers according to each AFE as per school size to collect data.
Priority must be given to the following five AFE’s
STEP 3: Manage the information collected
The use of evidence collected
Diagnose strengths & areas for development and implication for change
Identify key priorities.
Use the picture below to assist you in developing committees and putting plans for development in place
USING THE SSE TOOL
Which will also be filled after the school has finished with RATING using the information from the REPORT
This portion is where the school information is recorded as well as the graphs, weaknesses, strengths and recommendations
USE THE SSE RATING GUIDE
Evaluation, Supporting evidence and comments
Make sure you have saved the document with the name of your school
Note that all AFE’S are on this tool from 1-9 make sure you evaluate all of them
This area is guide on how and where to get information based on each AFE
The two columns for supporting Evidence and Comments should also be filled accordingly
Based on your assessment you will click in the qualitative rating column and click twice to access the ratings and select the one relevant to your assessment
The report will be generated automatically. To view strengths and weaknesses one must click on the funnel for filtering so as to record in the school report
