ESL assessment needed

    Hi, I'm a TA and Spanish teacher in a primary school (based in Y6) and a child has just arrived from Spain, she speaks English very well but has only ever spoken English at home so isn't really coping with subject specific language. We're looking for an assessment and hopefully a programme to follow, but none of us has the appropriate experience. Does anyone know any ESL assessment or programmes that might help. Google hasn't been particularly helpful as we really need to work out where she's at before we can move forwards.

    Thanks.

    Your local authority should have an EAL/ESOL support service.

    Thanks, we've been in touch but they're a bit slow, just hoping for something quicker than we can put in place before she gets bored :)
