The school will give them extra Catalan lessons, normally when the other children are in their religion classes. It may confuse them to learn Spanish beforehand as although there is supposed to be free choice of the language you want your children to be taught in, in reality it will be Catalan. The extra classes are free.

Your children will automatically be allocated places in the nearest school. There will be an English teacher there but it's unlikely it will be an English person. They will try to help out as much as they can. The level of English of other teachers may or may not be very high as it's not a requirement for a teaching post.

My info is old now(13 years ago) but when we moved into a small village and enrolled the children(a big help for the school too as they need the numbers) the school went all out with intensively teaching them Catalan for the first six and 12 months. They took our teens in for six months and then moved them to the nearest high school and all the kids in school ended up getting the language very quickly. It may be a little different in the big city : ) but I'm sure they'll do all they can to help.
