CAF & SPA, what's the difference and what's the best?

Our family support worker today said that I needed to chase up the SPA form that the school nurse said she would fill in for us. She then went on to say that maybe a CAF would be better, but that she wasn't sure so I'd better check with the nurse.
Of course, I knew just where to come for the most accurate information- mumsnet! Can someone enlighten me please, thanks.

Sorry not enough information there!
SPA- Single Point of Access
CAF- Comon Assessment Framework

From what I have read so far it seems that SPA is maybe just an outline of information on a child for healthcare practitioners, whereas the CAF is for all professionals involved with a child and includes desired outcomes and agreed actions.
