French School Grants for 2013/14

Details of the school grants for 2013/14 have recently been published by the government.

Following a thumping increase of 25% last year, there is a more modest increase in the Allocation de Rentrée Scolaire (ARS) this year, in line with inflation.

The level of the ARS varies according to the age of the child.

From September the grant increases to €360 for a child aged 6 to 10 years, €380 for a child aged 11 to 14 years, and €393 for a child aged 15 to 18 years.

The grant is means tested, but the test of resources is a generous one. If you have only one child then the maximum qualifying net income is €23,687. It rises to €29,153 for two children and €34,619 for three children.

These income thresholds are based on your income for 2011, as stated on your tax return made in 2012.

There are also a range of other grants and forms of assistance. The grants are cumulative but they are less generous than the ARS, and eligibility depends on family circumstances.

The grants are available to anyone resident in France who meets the eligibility criteria.
