    OK I know the answer to my query, personally but I just wanted to be 100% sure before I whip up a storm!
    I work in an independent school in Europe. The lit co-ordinator has no experience of APP or official writing assessments! They are putting together their own writing level assessments from a variety of sources - Lancs; Roz Wilson; Jackson McCormack etc etc - does this make a mockery of the ENC levels? Will their levels be secure when pitched against official levels? The most up to date National Standards APP AF criteria was brought to the party - but rejected!
    Also is differentiation still happening in literacy and numeracy? Silly question but was told today that most schools don't differntiate anymore!
