The notion of whole-school self-evaluation was introduced into the South African education system by (2001). Whole-school self-evaluation has since become an integral part of the official evaluation system. However, for schools to benefit maximally from self-evaluation, they should empower themselves to do independent school-based self-evaluation with a view to school improvement. In order to assist schools in this a clarification of concepts associated with self-evaluation is presented, the purpose of self-evaluation and its relation to the idea of school improvement are explored, the strategies, criteria and areas of self-evaluation are discussed and some attention is given to the crucial role of the School Management Team in whole-school self-evaluation.
